What Goes Around…

Today’s New York Times gives us a glimpse of the future in Iraq, which looks very much like the past. American troops seem likely wind up as janissaries in the service of some new Sunni Saddam.

And this regime nonchange will have been brought to you at a cost upwards of a trillion dollars by our very own Axis of Stupidity: neocon meddlers, American Likudniks and fundamentalist endtimers.

BAGHDAD, Iraq, July 16 — As sectarian violence soars, many Sunni Arab political and religious leaders once staunchly opposed to the American presence here are now saying they need American troops to protect them from the rampages of Shiite militias and Shiite-run government forces …

The Sunni Arab leaders say they have no newfound love for the Americans. Many say they still sympathize with the insurgency and despise the Bush administration and the fact that the invasion has helped strengthen the power of neighboring Iran, which backs the ruling Shiite parties.

But the Sunni leaders have dropped demands for a quick withdrawal of American troops. Many now ask for little more than a timetable. A few Sunni leaders even say they want more American soldiers on the ground to help contain the widening chaos.

Now we're talkin'. Check this out, Bush. Here's a situation which is truly ironic, unlike your little, shitty Anan reference.

Let me get this straight. Now we need to stay in Iraq to defend the deposed against the people we installed. Talk about your unintended consequences.

If Saddam gets the news, he must be digging this.

And the new Saddam might just be Muqtada-al-Sadr.

Don't really care what anyone says, they are simply Nazis, with better media coverage. Great photo, Jerome.
