Making a long story short for a normal, peaceful Muslim I hope some normal not-suicidal people live in Iraq too) life seems to be much more hellish now not then.
On the other hand while withdrawing his army Mr. Bush would not expect any support for his desire of controlling oil business there.
Well... while watching news from Indonesia I think much better business there to rebuild tourism etc (not necesarilly sex-tourism) because people there seem not be so willing to die for any religion. They seem to be more peacuful and less rebelious.
The Muslims - on the contrary. They have always liked attacking other nations and whole continents - European for example.
All in all imagining myself being a muslim woman in Iraq probably life would have been easier for me without the US army there. It seems to be rather the same life + some soldiers who can kick my ass as well as crazy suiciders who can make me not dead (not the worst solution) but crippled till the end of my days.
Summing up - any war needed to make life atrocious and some countries in need of rebuilding (not necessary of rebuilding any democracy there!!!) so... The Beatles still better than Elvis Presley.
Have a nice day,
