I’m unfortunately not in a position to say a lot about the current happenings in Iraq lately. I’ve been in a bit of a news blackout. But in the few minutes I get to check the web I see some pretty interesting items. With the capture of the number one Al-Qaeda in Iraq and the revolution that the real leaders of Al-Qaeda in Iraq were not Iraqi’s at all isn’t really a surprise.
While the Congress (both the Republicans and Democrats) play BS games the war goes on. There are many things happening that simply aren’t getting coverage. I suggest a look at Michael Yon, Bill Roggio and Pat Dollard for some real incite into how things are changing on the ground.
The problem is that while progress is being made in many area’s we still haven’t acknowledged that fact that we will have to deal with Syria and Iran at some point or none of the gains made will take hold. Iran for example only has to facilitate the killing of a few innocent civilians a week to create an atmosphere of instability. Politicians seem to be so far into the election cycle they refuse to see what’s before their own eyes. This is also no surprise.
Then there is Pakistan. Humm. This is interesting. It seems the appeasement approach Gen. Mushariff hasn’t worked out so well for him. You see fanatics don’t want to make progress they want to conquer. If he would have allowed us to follow Al-Qaeda and Taliban forces into the Waziristan area in the beginning he probably wouldn’t be facing the Islamist up-rising now. Then again maybe so but we would have finished it years ago.
Anyway forgive any grammar or spelling errors as I’m typing this on battery in a hot miserable place by the moonlight. Well ok there are some camp lights up.
