The resistance in Iraq to occupation is essentially a "Battle for
Mind". The Iraqi people can peacefully drive the occupiers mad by banging their pots and pans in the middle of every night for 15 minutes. The chorus will be joined by women children and adults. No one shall dare not to participate in this kind of resistance. Even the intelligence and army/police of the new "independent" government and all its functionaries shall participate, to avoid the wrath of the normal people. This pot banging should go on for ever till the foreign forces leave the country, irrespective of whatever other form of resistance is going on.
