Hey, I’m happy, I’m feeling glad,
I got sunshine in a bag.
I’m useless but not for long:
the future is coming on.
Finally, someone let me out of my cage.
Now, time for me is nothin’ ’cause I’m counting no age.
Nah, I couldn’t be there. Now you shouldn’t be scared.
I’m good at repairs and I’m under each snare.
Intangible, bet you didn’t think so,
I command you to, panoramic view:
look I’ll make it all manageable.
Pick and choose, sit and lose.
All you different crews,
chicks and dudes, who you think is really kicking tunes?
In particularly, I highlithed four main similarities
- Current US policy makes Iraqi democratic built on the demographic majority of the nation into enemies, instead of friends
- Current US policy is unsustainable, and America will inevitable embarece their naturla friends, the Shia (Iraqi) militias
- The Shia Iraqi Militias form the spine of the natural SysAdmin reconstruction force in Iraq
- The Shia Iraqi Militais have the ability to defeat our enemies, the Baathists and the Qaedists
- Defeat can only come from recognizing our natural alliance with the Shia militias.
Yet another story in the New York Times confirms my initial judgements:
American forces have already shifted some forces to new high-violence sectors and may make further adjustments. Shrinking the military zone controlled by the American Baghdad-based division, which now extends south to the cities of Najaf and Karbala, has also been discussed as a way to increase the density of American troops in the capital.
Erecting more barricades to section off parts of the city has been proposed by some officers. So has legitimizing some neighborhood watch ["militia" -- tdaxp] organizations. That idea cuts against the policy to abolish militias but has been advocated by some military officials as a useful expedient.
The only losers are the Iraqi Sunni Arabs. We fought for three years to save them for the fate they, like the extrainsular Japanese and the European Germans, sowed.
