I'm thinking about other countries that had their asses kicked by the US.

Germany was once one of the greatest military powers on the planet with a fanatic devotion to tradition, strength and patriotism. Then they got their asses kicked by the US. Today they are known for schizer flicks and new wave pop music.

Japan once had an army that had conquered most of Asia and a Navy that was second to none in the Pacific. They also had a fanatical devotion to honor and the Emperor. Then they got their asses kicked by the US. Today they are known for transistor radios, Godzilla and tentacle rape.

Iraq once had the fourth largest army on Earth, over ran Kuwait in a couple of days and were feared through out the Middle East. Then they got their asses kicked by the US. I wonder what kind of goofy shit Iraq will be churning out in 60 years.

Either their oil reserves will have run dry or we will have figured out a far better source of energy. In either event, it will be a barren wasteland with almost no exploitable resources or manufacturing base.

Well,if they had the sense to use their great oil wealth that neither Germany,Japan or South Korea had following wars that destroyed far,far,far more of their country...they'd be building world class vehicles of all kind,electronics and have one of the largest economies in the world...


However,due to their cultural/tribal/religious shenanigans I don't see anything close to the like happening. The population and area isn't small enough to lord over like the small Gulf states and it will likely remain something of a shithole. I don't believe they are culturally very well suited to democracy except and unless there is a long period of time in which the military is the guarantor of stability,as in Turkey. The problem is that they don't have a well respected monarchy like Jordan and they have a halfassed military with no Attaturk like figure. Similarly,they have no Tito to keep them together peacefully.

I don't know,they're actually managing MUCH better than I ever thought but I'd say in the long term an independent Kurdistan is an eventuality ( depending upon how the Assad regime finally ends it may include the northern portion of Syria) and there will also be a reckoning day with the Iran. If somehow there is a revolution,the Mullahs get thrown out and the younger generation of Iranians want a decent country without aspirations of an empire,things might end up going fairly well. Regardless of Iraq's problems,there are still so many other issues that saying or thinking everything will be OK is just too much of a longshot.


In short,I have no idea...some Iraqi colonel is very likely wishing to be the next Saddam at this very moment.Hell,it very well could happen too.

Yikes, I would not consider Germany and Japan as doing lousy. Considering they had their societies decimated it is impressive what they rebuilt in two generations.

Compare that to other races such as...hmmm...better not.
