Lesson Title: 

Iraq Losses Pre and Post-Invasion

Is it acceptable to destroy Iraq's infrastructure by America's war machine? The pre & post April 2003 air war and preemptive strike outraged and angered so many Iraqis. They considered them wrong, non-American and ultimately undermined their credibility among the Arabs & Muslims in the region. The speaker who studied in the USA questions what he sees wrong, he believes if people capitulated to destruction they would only be encouraged to resist their invaders.
