These are not the people the US wants to be pissing off.

US commandos go psycho on residents of the wealthy Al Mansour district, and rich folks are hella pissed off about it. If there is anyone who stands to gain from US insistence on openeing Iraq up to "foreign investment" it is these folks. They are natural allies, the most westernized, and they are the class that the US will pull its leaders from (just like in Central America). If the Central American model is a correct analogy, though, the US will accord them no respect and no autonomy, and they will end up being ineffectual and corrupt proxies, ultimately doomed to failure. But thats assuming they aren't turned onto the resistance by American macho bullshit like this. If they begin supporting the resistance the US has no hope for the occupation, period.
