Insurgency Self-Destructs

This AP story tells of the increasing futility of the foreign born insurgency. Now they've taken to destroying the support of those in pro-Saddam neighborhoods. At the gain of killing 7 officers, they have killed 22 civilians. Not an effective way to win "hearts and minds" is it? When the Ba'athist Sunnis in these neighborhoods abandon them (and they will) they will be totally exposed. They've lost but do not realize it yet. And they know that Iraqi security forces will follow up on every anonymous lead to hunt them down. Looks like the Iraqis are about ready to ensure their own security so our forces can "blow this pop stand". Let's start bringing them home by Valentines Day!

I hadn`t seen that article! Gee, I wonder why?

This is something we should have all seen coming. Partisans/terrorists inevitably turn on their own base. A scorpion is a scorpion, and eventually it will sting.

Love your blog! It is one of the most informative sites I`ve found!
