    the Baathists and Iraqui nationalists who are working with them.

      to lose?

      The Baathists ran the show for what? 40 years? then we come in and throw them out.

      easy to understand why they're pissed off and will fight to get back into power.

        sort of like it's easy to understand why Londo Mollari got into an alliance with the Shadows.

        Though maybe that's not a good comparison. Will have to think about it more tomorrow, when it's not so late and international football's not on :-)
