Iraqi and British Forces Battle Shiite Militias – New York Times

Is it just me or is the fact that both tribes (sunnis and shiites) are pushing back against the new “Iraqi” government a bad thing…really bad thing.


Iraqi security forces and British troops fought Shiite militias and tribesmen in two major cities south of Baghdad on Wednesday in sustained battles that left two policemen and a dozen militiamen dead and underscored the tenuous grip the Iraqi government maintains even in regions not under the sway of Sunni Arab insurgents.

“It is an outburst because of the assassination of the head of the Asadi tribe,” the tribal leader, who called himself Ayatollah al-Asadi, told Al Jazeera. Faisal Raji al-Asadi “contributed to throwing the British out,” he said. “Maybe they are taking revenge now.”

I’m still waiting for an exit stratagy.

I have stated befpre and I will state it again:  This is Vietnam all over again and we will eventually wind up pulling out and leaving the country in shambles.
