  2. Must be true if iraqthemodel blogspot says so. :wink:

  3. Another piece from the very same source that iraqthemodel blogspot points to - but one it chooses not to pass on to the american masses: :wink:

    Nice to get a rounded perspective sometimes...

  4. Very interesting - if the locals have decided they no longer need AQ to shoot at the Americans that could mean several things:

    1. Peace is breaking out, happy happy joy joy and so on - forward into a democratic future in a spirit of islamic brotherhood (no sisterhood, back in the burqa for you Doris);
    2. They feel they can take on the US alone without a bunch of creepy jihadi imports cluttering the place up;
    3. AQ have stopped shooting at the US as they shoot back and started targeting the locals so time for them to go.

    And as for Saudi Arabia, the blind spot the US have there is breath-taking. Bin-Laden (a Saudi) dropped the WTC using mostly Saudis funded by Saudi money - which comes from Joe Redneck fuelling his SUV in the good old US of A. So the US invade Afghanistan and then Iraq. Does that make sense to anyone ?
