Browsing through a blog from an iraqi that heron61 posted, I found the following:

But the truth is, the raids only accomplish one thing: they act as a constant reminder that we are under occupation, we are not independent, we are not free, we are not liberated. We are no longer safe in our own homes- everything now belongs to someone else.

You know, one of the reasons this country was founded was because they were sick of housing British troops. Ok, a minor reason of many major ones, but good enough that it was a point put in the Constitution. Now we're doing worse abroad.

I also recommend reading the blog. It has a lot of very interesting things to say on the state of Iraqi affairs these days, including politics, women's rights, the fundamentalist return, the constant state of violence, and the effects of losing friends to much of the above.
