Iraq, the cradle of civilization

Town Musician

The important thing is to think and assess the risks inherent in deciding on a certain path. I have to digress now ever so slightly. I can't help thinking about what's happening in Iraq. First of all, it was a mistake going in there. But why in the world didn't anybody consider the intelligence of the people whose culture includes the stories of A Thousand And One Nights. The stories of the Thief of Baghdad and Aladin and the Magic Lamp are well known, I presume. Should it not be a given that the people in that country are not dumb? The country is the cradle of civilization. Why was their known intelligence not being taken into account? They knew they could not fight an enemy by conventional means.
