BBC E-mail: Basra: Why they are not cheering
** Message **
News report March 2003 by UK journalist Robert Fisk. There are rumors that present civil and sectarian strife has been formented by insurgents and agents of the West. Their liberation from Saddam was welcomed; the extended stay - and planned permanent stay - is not welcomed. The expected danger (by anyone with 3 brain cells functioning) of insurgent activity and civil/sectarian strife gives the US excuse for increased military presence to "stabalize" Iraq.
