Nation's Top Peace Psychologists Meet in DC to Discuss War
 
WASHINGTON - March 25 - Psychology has already played a major role in this war. The United States from the beginning relied on multiple psychological war techniques to try and induce the Iraqis into surrendering.

Instead of the surrenders the United States military was hoping for, they have met stiff resistance. When you invade someone's home, they will defend themselves.

If it comes to occupation, how will the Iraqis react? Will the U.S. be viewed as liberators, or an invading force?

There is a lot of psychology involved in this war. Amid that backdrop, some of the nation's top psychologists who are devoted to peace will be meeting in Washington DC this week to discuss many of the issues surrounding this war.
