There is 4 main differences between the Gulf War 1 and the possible Gulf War 2:

1- Virtually the entire world is against that war including almost all Iraq surounding arab countries

2- The muslin community is coming together

3- The battle field will be urban

4- Saddam has to be caught, that's a major goal.

Would it change the outcome or is it going to be another milk run?

Maybe the military operation will proceed in a similar way as the second Russian operation in Chechnia.

I heard the russians controls just two main streets inside Grozny. Is that what we must expect from Bahgdad occupation?

The Iraq war certainly won't be as prolonged as the Chechnyan war, or for that matter the Afghan war, even if Iraqis do fight. Reason is that in the latter 2 countries the rebel forces are able to operate from mountain hideouts and concealed bases. Gives them quite a handy edge on any attacker. In Iraq there are no hills to hide and fight in. Only a few cities, and you can't fight for years on end in a city. You'd be smoked out and destroyed eventually. In a few months of fighting.

kraig, as usual you are wrong.

> 1- Virtually the entire world is against that war including almost all Iraq surounding arab countries

The US is getting support or tacit support from nearly every country around Iraq.

> 2- The muslin community is coming together

Maybe. They will probably come together like they did during Afghanistan. (Anybody remember Afghanistan? Am I the only one?)

> 3- The battle field will be urban

Not as important as you'd think. WWII was 50 years ago. Thats a long time.

> 4- Saddam has to be caught, that's a major goal.

If he's gone he's gone. The major goal is to make Iraq a thriving democracy.

ZXB,

Yes but maybe some sort of terrorist struggle is possible. After all Israel can't prevent terrorist attacks...

So, maybe the U.S. can be defeated if every day a few U.S. soldiers are blown to pieces.

The US cannot be defeated. Not unless some countries uses nuclear weapons, which I do not want to happen. It can however, be slowed down. But I just can't see any guerrilla warfare against US/UK troops in Iraq continuing for more than a few months at most.

UB I think I'm in the right way if someone like you says "I'm wrong as usual".

I was just wondering, trying to get some other perspectives here. I didn't affirmed anything.

However, the fact that maybe some 30 boots licker are supporting the war, doesn't change the fact that the majority of the world is against it. The world has more than 150 countries.

The urban war still is a very complicated issue, WW II was yesterday in terms of ground combat.

Afghanistan is not over yet, my friend. They have all the time of the world to resist, why such a hurry? Besides that, the spring is arriving and probably will bring more resistance.

About making Iraq a democracy...........let's ask if is that they want to.
