It looks as though item two will not happen unless there is a lot more of item 1. Many people do not want this to happen and are working against the war which also has the added benefit of making the invaders more careful in their war. Some people worry about civilians getting killed by bombs in Baghdad. Some people worry about civilians getting killed across the rest of Iraq with noone knowing or counting. Some people worry about the British laying siege to Basra and starving the people into submission. I worry about the fact that by going to war, the US/UK have halted the oil for food program. This could well lead to many more 'invisible deaths'. The war needs to be over quickly - either by surrender or ceasefire/withdrawal. My view is that this is our immediate priority.
