Sunnis to kick Shia butt -repost from 11/26/06

The Sunni insurgents are now literally and actually in their "last throes."
But now this statement means they have won.
A knowledgeable source basically says that it is an open secret that the Sunni insurgents will kick the Shia's butt when we leave.
And, our staying will serve no useful purpose.
Let events take their course.
Tis a shame we didn't go in with 300,000 troops or not disband the Army, but "Oh well."

(Current addition. It is interesting to note that the Sunni's are more comfortable with secular life, Christian minorities, women's rights and not aligned with Iran...the "Farside" meets Bush's Iraq victory. Also there's a quote somewhere of Cheney expressing disgust or disappointment that Shia fighters as compared to the Sunnis are wusses.)

Labels: , ,

But are the sunni happy with giving the shia the vote? Or women? or anyone, for that matter? Is it going to be back to a guy from Tikrit and his idiot sons?
Iraq was ruled by brutality before we attempted our occupation and it will be so tomorrow and a decade from now.
Perhaps we can call the Iraq government model, "Modified Brutality."
The Shia are being brutal and killing and displacing Sunnis, why not the reverse from the Sunnis.
Just let us control the oil, come on guys.
It has been frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force.

So, what's the answer? Is it possible? Or were the cynics right?
Can a third party storm the Bastille to augment democracy and liberte?
Good question!
