Senior Research Fellow and Middle East Project Director for the Institute for National Strategic Studies at the National Defense University
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"We are not going to become best loved liberators over night. There will still, and there will always be a resentment of the foreigner, the occupier who's come in. Even though you did something good, got rid of Saddam and his ugly sons, still you are a foreign occupier. So we will continue to have opposition, and that will include attacks on us. That's not going to stop. It may diminish, it may stay the same."
