    Paying sunni warlords and former insurgents to be our new "allies" in Iraq.

    I remember how well that worked out, when we paid afghan warlords to fight for us against the taliban. They took our money, took our weapons, and did a half-assed job in fighting and capturing the taliban. Sometimes, helping us to a certain extent. Sometimes, just letting taliban fighters get way (Hello? Tora Bora?). i.e., Basically, pursuing their own interests, and taking our money and weapons when it suits their interests.
