You must be dumb as a post to think this. The US military in Iraq was not harmed by unarmed civilians, but by well armed terrorist who were will to kill thousands of innocent women and children in order to kill one America. The end justified the means to the terrorist. What's a few thousand civilian one way or the other. I can't believe how totally stupid liberals are when it comes to almost any subject at all.

Please re-read this sentence you completely misunderstood it.

If the government/tyrant is NOT willing to massacre the population (such as is the case with the US military in Iraq), you don't NEED weapons, an unarmed uprising is going to be the most effective option.

My point is that if the Iraqis really wanted the US out of Iraq, they should have resisted the occupation through unarmed means. If millions of unarmed Iraqis had organized sitdowns around US military bases, the occupation wouldn't have lasted very long.
