Japan attacked the US, so Japan had it coming to it when the US
retaliated; the US attacked Iraq, so the US had it coming to it if
Iraq had been able to retaliate. It's not a question of which system
is better, it's a question of the citizens of a country having the
right to forcefully resist invasion. *Of course* the invader will
claim that they will be welcomed by all right-thinking people, and
only the evil terrorists, who must be rooted out, will resist. *Of
course* there will be people who do welcome the invaders, and prosper
under them, but the resistance will regard these people as traitors.
