” ‘Many observers of the war with Iraq are focused on the looming battle for Baghdad in anticipation that it will be the culminating event of the conflict…,’ he [retired Marine Colonel Gary Anderson] wrote in the Washington Post [on April 2, 2003] several days before the fall of Baghdad. ‘But in the view of the Iraqi leadership, it may be only the end of a first stage in a greater Iraqi plan.’ He warned about the rise of ‘a protracted guerrilla war against the *occupation,* which the American-British coalition bills as liberation.’ ”
