Lepus Rex - jacqui: Are the United States, Britain, and their allies not "bigger and stronger" than the indigenous Iraqi insurgents? Better equipped and trained? Huh, that must be why the "war" is going so well, then. :)

My comment referred to colonists, not invaders. Look back in history - the colonisation of the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, Africa. Even further back the Roman empire. It has always happened, may always happen. The success, and thus the acceptance of any colonisation attempt seems to depend on the size of the stick being wielded.
