Minority Rule

According to this opinion poll from February 2004, Saddam Hussein only had 3.3% support. This leverage (3.3% vs 96.7%) is provided courtesy of automatic weapons. We cannot expect enslaved populations to free themselves. External military assistance is required. As the Libyan spokesman Moussa Ibrahim said "These armed gangs would not be able to move a meter, to advance a meter if faced by our army and by our tribes and our families and our volunteers, but because NATO kills anything that moves before the rebels, then these rebels are able to move forward.". That is the military equation, like it or lump it.
