Dahr Jamailat The Progressive via Alternet - reviews Meeting Resistance, a movie about the understandable response of the Iraqi resistance to the U.S. occupation of their country. Netflix lists it, but doesn't know when the DVD will become available.

"Suppose Iraq invaded America. And an Iraqi soldier was on a tank passing through an American street, waving his gun at the people, threatening them, raiding and trashing houses. Would you accept that? This is why no Iraqi can accept occupation, and don't be surprised by their reactions," says "The Imam," a young man from a mixed Sunni-Shia family, as he explains the genesis of the insurgency in Iraq and its exponential growth.

My friends and I have talked about this.

I have several like-minded friends. We all agree that, if that happened, we would pool our copious armaments, and raise hell. We'd probably end up dead, but we'd bring plenty with us.
