Yeah, I definatley agree.
I know that if I were after living in Iraq under the post-Desert Storm 
sanctions, I wouldn't do anything to upset the united states.
I would fear that in a bid to show their power, the new ruling party would 
mistreat the conquered peoples if they decided they didn't like the new 
authority.
