Asia Times – Asia’s most trusted news source for the Middle East: “This is exactly the point of view of a Shi’ite woman we had met two days earlier – a former undercover opposition militant against Saddam: ‘The biggest mistake of the occupation forces was to despise our traditions and our culture. They are not satisfied with having bombed our infrastructure, they tried to destroy our social system and our dignity. And this we cannot allow. The wounds are deep and the healing will take long. We prefer to live under the terror of one of our own than under the humiliation of a foreign occupation.’ “
