It was as if someone shook up a 6 foot can of blood soda and suddenly popped the top.

well, i'd argue that it should be the other way around & then qualified as in 'why is the american administration so obsessed with iraq?'.
one could then examine the history of the region e.g. the way Saddam rose to power, the cynical way the kurds have been used by the C.I.A. & other intelligence agancies for years, the way iraq was used as a buffer against Iran - with both sides being supplied during the iran-iraq war, examine the politics of oil, the way iraq fits into that geostrategic planning & by then one may almost be in a position to ask the question why iraq is obsessed with america.
Possibly because american intelligence has been meddling in the region for years, many NSC & other documents outline U.S. plans for dominating the region in order to secure the oil & other strategic minerals & of course at the moment the U.S. is illegally occupying the country, raping their oil & shipping industries, contractors are steling money to the tune of billions whilst huge MNC's & TNC's with deep links to the administration also make millions, a constitution which guarantees future raping of the countries resources to U.S. benefit is proposed, permanent military bases are being situated there & when anyone complains they are carted off to be tortured, 'dissapeared' or their cities are carpet bombed to near extinction in a guernican manner that breaks multiple international laws & treaties, yet hardly anyone complains as the U.S. has such control over the media & the U.N. security council etc. (fallujah?).
If you live in Iraq, given the history I have barely touched upon (as it would require reading a comprehensive history of middle eastern political history) & the present reality would you not be interested, perhaps even obsessed with the country which had so shaped your history & now controlled your destiny with such violent, bloodthirsty imperial grip?

Iraq is obsessed with amerca cuz, we're like awesome and stuff........we are like the only like country with any morals, so we need to go and kill bad people, and save the wolrd. why doesn't anbody thank us, cuz we help a lot. and thank jesus that our leader is a man of god or else i might question why we're in Iraq. otherwise I might think it was for the oil. but that is a stupid idea cuz america is selfless and we don't care about oil.

Iraq did not have an obsession with us until the Janet Jackson exposed breast incident in the Super Bowl. I think they were amazed that our culture was so laid back that having her breast exposed for 700ms on television would not cause a stir.

I hear they're really into old school hip hop and the NYC graffitti scene over there.
