What will happen to America's collaborators?
|Following on from my last posting, here's an interesting thing from the USA: the American ambassador to Iraq has requested that immigrant visa be immediately granted to all Iraqis who work for the Americans. Obviously the reason for it is to keep the Iraqis at their desks and to stop them fleeing to other countries to escape retribution, but that is only half the story.|
If the American ambassador thought for one moment that his country was going to win the war against Iraq, then this request would not need to be made. The Iraqi collaborators would be only too happy to stay at their posts, receiving American dollars and living off the fat of the occupied land. However, the fact is that this is not what's happening.
What is happening is that the guerrillas are getting stronger and the occupiers are becoming weaker. The question is not if the Americans will cut and run but when.
Those who cast in their lot with the occupiers know this and are afraid - very, very afraid.
