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.
