turn on the camera's to show the happy 'liberated' peoples, then just make sure you turn them off again(don't worry, the Army will make sure you do) after the troops leave town, the promised humanitarian aid never shows up, and the various sects set upon each other, killing, looting, raping.
Listen, I'm happy for those people. But the idea that 'liberation' is foremost in the minds of these architects of war (and by this I mean Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld. I really believe the troops _do_ care and really believe they are doing what is right) is ludicrous. These people will be forgotten before the next episode of Fear Factor starts.
