A few questions to ponder. Why are there US companies trying to pork other ones working in Iraq? Which Iraqis are not helping out the coalition forces, and how does one identify insurgent sympathizers accurately? CNN NEWS momments ago, did a report on Guns For Hire in Iraq, the story tells of a private escort service that has been ambushed multiple times by IED, and followed up by sustained roof top gunfire.. The bad guys are being given free passage by somebody to set up their wares of destruction. Who should be held responsible? ( (Part of a story which showed that certain US escort/security companies are trying to screw the smaller ones.. This is aiding to destabilize the communities around the hot spots, exactly the opposite of what we need )) So, although I don't condone the killing of unarmed civilians, I can appreciate the frustration of the US soldiers, and some hired security teams, who have been over zealous in their quest for revenge. This taboo has caused more than a few negative results for our troops, and the reputation of the US in the world. As I see it, the native Iraqis have at least two choices. One, they can let the insurgents destroy their country, their life styles and their families. Two: They can do more to alert US and allied forces as to who, and where the bad guys are held up. The people can let the coalition forces know where the bombs and supplies are stashed, or set to go off. This of course would afford their own troops more time to get ready to take over themselves, and allow us to leave. Or,, they can do nothing and the US troops will be forced out by the Next Congress. That will also pose a problem for the US in that the remaining troops, of ?? composition, will have to also defend the oil fields, etc.. If they don't, our oil/petroleum prices will probably double.. It's a no win game for us should this happen.
