    Ignore the question. Ridicule the premise. Republican Playbook page 1, paragraph 3.



    Let me repeat the premise and the implied question for you: "Saudis make up 41% of foreign fighters in Iraq."

    Perhaps the business interests preempt the national ones? Go figure?

    As I understand it, 40% of a shrinking (dying) number is less and less.

    As you ignore the growing number of religionists that become more and more afraid of the intentions of the USofA and the growing number of the beforehand coalition that now are also afraid of American intentions, I count you as unAmerican and antiAmerican spirit.


    Have you considered putting on a Marine uniform for real?

    Gosh, no, the marines wouldn't take me. I'm on the wrong side of 30.

    However, al-Qaeda in Iraq is being destroyed because the Sunni and Shi'a are sick and tired of foreigners blowing up their own. So the number of dead Saudis is rising.

    Bush upped the enlistment age to 44. At least, for the army.

    I can't tell you how many times in 2004, 2005, and 2006, Bush fans told me that the iraqis were turning on al qaeda. The predictions of imminent "victory" never seem to end.

    If you'd turn off the limbaugh show, I will gladly explain what is happening in iraq. We are arming sunni warlords, and former sunnin insurgents who killed americans, and paying them money to go kill al qaeda. There's no doubt, that many sunnis are pissed at the way al qaeda blew up a lot of innocents. Jack Murtha said over two years ago that the sunnis would turn on al qaeda if we stopped refereeing a civil war. But, al qaeda in iraq, is a relatively small part of the problem. The US military admits this. Although they are responsible for many spectacular bombings, their influence and power in iraq has always been limited.

    What were doing is further fragmenting iraq. By paying and arming sunni warlords, we're creating whole new militias who have little if any allegiance to the central government. In fact, the shia government fears what these sunni warlords will do with all the guns and money we've given them.

    For their part, the sunni warlords are glad to take our money and weapons. They have their own agenda, and their own interests. They're happy to take our money. For the time being.

    You'd think the US would have learned by now to stop funding and arming foreigners, especially one's that are at war with each other.

    Historically, it has always come back to bite us in the ass. By "us" I mean the American people. It seems to usually present an opportunity later in the future though, for the people who love war.
