The three stages of colonial wars 

Jonathan Schwarz sure hit the nail on the head with his post on the three stages of colonial wars which are:

1. We've got to help these people!
2. Why are these people resisting our attempts to help them?
3. These people MUST BE KILLED!!!!!!!!

Check the whole thing out at A Tiny Revolution

The only thing I would add is that Friedman is a little behind the curve. A lot of the warbloggers have been in the "just kill 'em all" stage for quite some time now. And once this farce of voting on the Iraqi consitution is over and the war continues unabated I'm sure even the final holdhouts to the pretention of "helping" Iraq will be well into stage three.
