The suicide attacks are disturbingly reminiscent of Israel's and the US's failed invasions of Lebanon in the 80s, which were eventually defeated by suicide bombers.Unfortunately, the current US invasion is fanning the flames of Islamic fundamentalism and creating a huge cadre of people willing to blow themselves up to hurt the USA. Bin Laden could not have planned it better: the USA is his best recruiter.In the meantime, if the Bush team gamble of a quick war does not bear out, this thing is going to get a lot uglier, and as it becomes more of an unconventional war, both sides will commit atrocities. What's worse, is more and more people will become more and more hostile to the USA and more willing to die in order to hurt us.
