Little Hawk:

I think you need to do some more research; these are not the Resistance Fighters you are looking for!!:D They're not rising up against an oppressive occupation as much as they are trying to preserve a privileged position in the government that has been taken away from them, rightly or wrongly. Or they're out-country hustlers working for Zarqawa. I seriously doubt there is much indigenous outrage of the kind that you attribute to "resistance" fighters.

I do not agree with the invasion that started this war, but there's no sense getting blinded by that sentiment.
