Do you think the Iraq War is nothing more than a Proxy War between the US and Russia?
Question by Enigma: Do you think the Iraq War is nothing more than a Proxy War between the US and Russia?
Just like the experts say, Vietnam was a proxy war fought in a small foreign country because of the great differences of the superpowers. The superpowers know that they don’t want war in their own country and they also don’t want to destroy the world, so they fight out these smaller by comparison wars. Isn’t this actually another showdown of power with our friends the Russians again?

No this is not a proxy war in the old cold war style. Russia is not actively arming the Iraqis the way that they supplied North Vietnam.
This to me is more a case of making an example of a country that would not yield to American “diplomacy”.
