Iraqis not exactly happy to be conquered...

ABC reporter John Donovan travels unescorted into "conquered" Safwan, only to find freshly mined roads, reports of gunfire just a handful of miles into Kuwait, and lots of angry residents.

Relief supplies still haven't arrived, and international relief and medical agencies are objecting to US military using access to food, medicine as a "bargaining chip" in the war. They believe that the military's efforts to oversee access and distribution of relief supplies may put them at risk, by associating them with US forces. Humanitarian groups now are more likely to pull their workers out of volatile places or avoid them altogether.

It will be a *long* occupation...
