We’ve Turned the Corner

Filed under: Defending America,Democratic Idiocy,Terrorism — Sisyphus @ 5:05 am

Progress abounds in Iraq, if you’ll just look beyond the media filter and see it. Even the Iraqi insurgents are turning against Al Qaeda:

U.S. forces have begun arming nationalist guerrillas and former Saddam Hussein loyalists — and coordinating tactics — in a marriage of convenience against al Qaeda radicals in one of Iraq’s most violent provinces, senior U.S. commanders tell CNN.

This new alliance, a result of the deepening divisions among Iraqi insurgent factions, was on display earlier this week at a highway intersection in the town of Tahrir. There, a group of some 15 insurgents publicly chanted: “Death to al Qaeda.”

“The al Qaeda organization has dominated and humiliated Sunnis, Shiites and jihadis. It has forced people from their homes. They can’t get enough blood. They killed many honest scholars, preachers and loyal mujahedeen,” one of the group’s spokesmen read from a written manifesto.

Even the insurgents have sided with us against Osama Bin Laden. Now that Saddam is out of the picture, former Saddamists are embracing America with open arms.

Meanwhile, the treefrog terrorist-enablers on the home front continue to side with Al Qaeda. Why they hate America and Iraq is beyond me. Perhaps they take their marching orders from George Soros, who takes his from Iran, which takes its from Osama. It’s hard for me to say, but someday we will learn the truth. Until then, we have to keep fighting the good fight in Iraq, with our new friends, the insurgents, ready to stand by us and help us.

God bless America.

  1. U.S. forces have begun arming nationalist guerrillas and former Saddam Hussein loyalists — and coordinating tactics — in a marriage of convenience against al Qaeda radicals in one of Iraq’s most violent provinces, senior U.S. commanders tell CNN.

    Arming Saddam Hussein loyalists. Wow, that has the possibility of backfiring in a horrible way. Most of the sniper attacks are made by ex-republican-guard dudes, you know. At least the professional ones.

    Otherwise, where´s the news here? The differrent insurgency groups were wacking each other since the biginning of the insurgence. The only thing all those groups have in common: They want the US Army out of their country.

  2. If all the differing groups kill each other and we are left standing, we win by default. It truely is a brilliant strategy. Kudos to our commander in cheif.

  3. “U.S. forces have begun arming nationalist guerrillas”

    Auch, that sounds familiar (Contra’s, Taliban, Saddam, etc…)

  4. Sisyphus, I’m so glad that you go out there and find the good news that the liberal media won’t show us.

    Feel the surge, al Qaeda!!! Feel the surge!!!

  5. Um.

    Anti Al-Qaeda doesn’t mean pro-America.

    “At the highway intersection in Tahrir, the insurgents said they had named their anti-al Qaeda alliance the United Jihad Council. They said the newly formed council was an umbrella organization of smaller insurgent units, including the 1920s Brigades, the Mujahedeen Army, Islamic Army and the Salaheddin Brigades.”

    Look up any of the names of those insurgent groups to find the slew of recent killings and kidnappings each has been responsible for.

    “looking past the media filter” doesn’t mean “selectively reading the news”.

    Except that they attack US troops any time they have the chance to…

    @Sceptic: Also reminds me of Vietnam. Or Korea. Or arming both Iran and Iraq.

    Who are you, to deny them the prospect of redemption?

    Amen!

    Either you’re with us, or you’re against us. They’re not against us, so they’re definitely with us!

    Well, would you lead someone who has been in jail for robbery into a bank and give him a loaded gun?

    Either you’re with us, or you’re against us. They’re not against us, so they’re definitely with us!

    No. They are just on their own side and will do what they need to promote their own agenda.

  12. Arming the Taliban (and al Qaeda) was a foolish mistake by Bill Casey after the brain cancer had ruined his thinking. It wasn’t until BushII came to poer that we had a president with courage and good sense to eliminate the Taliban and make war on al Qaeda.

  15. I think that the time has come to put research on the gay bomb back on the front burner:

    ‘”The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soliders to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistably attractive to one another,” Hammond said after reviwing the documents.’

    These are airmen, not godless Darwinists. They make bombs for the US Air Force. Therefore they can be trusted.

  18. Well, in any case they use GPS and satellites and godless darwinist science in their calculations.

    Did you know that most astronauts were/are airforce personnel?

    GPS may work, but it doesn’t work for the reasons they think it works. GPS is a mystery yet to be explained.

    “Did you know that most astronauts were/are airforce personnel?”

    Yes, but they have been brainwashed, duped, corrupted, or are simply insane. Take this astronaut, for example:

    How do you know those people at the lab haven’t been brainwashed?

    “GPS may work, but it doesn’t work for the reasons they think it works. GPS is a mystery yet to be explained.”

    It’s not some unexplained phenomenon: we built it!

    NBC-protection. Chemical weapons aren´t that much of a deal, except when used against civilians.

    Ok, seriously: Arming the sunnis, that´s like trying to cas tout Satan by striking an alliance with Belzebub. Really (not) smart.

    The Taliban didn’t even exist until 1996, tough guy.

    God, I hope so!

    Exactly!

    “It’s not some unexplained phenomenon: we built it!”

    We build lots of things that work for reasons that no one understands. Even simple household appliances like toaster ovens are almost impossible to explain. Are YOU going to claim you know how your toaster oven works? I doubt it. I have yet to hear a coherent explanation of them. I think the first models were built by guesswork, divinely inspired guesswork. Without God’s guiding Hand, we wouldn’t have most modern technology. But to ask how it works is to verge on blasphemy.

    Not really, they were originally a Pakistani organization and they were there in the 1980’s, they only conquered all of Afghanistan in 1996 with US support.

    Zia ul-Haq didn’t have let the Taliban form. Their vanguard was the war orphans who were toddlers in the 1980s.

    “Man, that’s f*cking hilarious!”

    I can’t help but notice that you’ve dodged answering the question.

  25. “I can’t help but notice that you’ve dodged answering the question.”

    I doubt you’re gonna listen, much less believe me, but this is how a toaster works:

    Electricity (that is, a moving electrical charge caused by the movement of electrons through the wire) enters the toaster, inside is a piece of ill-conducting material, called a “resistance”, through which the electrical current has to “struggle” to move (the electrons in the resistance are more tightly bound to their atoms than the electrons in the wire), this causes friction, causing the resistance to warm up (kinetic energy has been transfered from the electrons to the atoms of the resistance).

    The actual “toasting” of the bread is a chemical reaction that requires heat.

    There you go!

    Techno-babble mumbo-jumbo. Probably means nothing anyway.

    Well, duh! Who doesn’t know that? I asked you how a toaster works, not how toast works!

    Thanks anyway, though.

  27. We should gay Bomb all of Iraq and Iran and Pakistan. While the terrorists are busy practising there broadway show tunes and marching in there gay parades, We can kill them all. Victory will soon be ours. I don’t see a flaw in this plan. Does anyone else?

    There are Christian minorities in those countries. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it; it just means that we have to use precision munitions.

    I would suggest that we gay-bomb France, too, but apparently someone has already done that.

  30. Just one question, who ever said gays can’t fight?

    Let me tell you, you don’t wanna mess with a 180lbs lesbian, and there are gays and women in the military already.

    I don’t think a bullet will be any less deadly when a homosexual pulled the trigger…

    I agree with the first part, I’ll grant you that.

    Depends on what it’s pointed at.

  35. Hmm, the AN sounds interesting. Let´s say €500 for the gun + 2 mags, and another 250€ for another 3 mags, a box of spare ammo and a cleaning kit. Deal?

    (PS: Any way to get stuff that is not developed in the eastern block?)

  36. ‘Military Times’ poll results from December 2006:

    “Only 35% of the military members polled this year said they approve of the way Bush is handling the war, and 42% said they disapprove…only 41% of the military said the U.S. should have gone to war in Iraq in the first place, down from 65% in 2003.”

    From my personal experience that trend is continuing. But I guess we’re all just “treefrog terrorist-enablers.”😉
