Iraq, a Rock, it’s All the Same

After more and more reports of the niggling guerilla attacks in Iraq, the terrorists have finally revealed their strength.

It’s got to be sheer misery to be on the ground in that country. I wonder if we’ve forgotten to be the hunter in this war on terrorists? Our troops should be stalking the little Osamas, not the reverse.

I love the quote from Kofi Inane: “It is those with the responsibility for security and law and order who have the intelligence which determines what action is taken.” So he’d approve of his personnel being placed under the equivalent of house arrest?

What I wonder is how long it will be before we’re training and turning out respectable numbers of Iraqis capable of defending their own country? Will this in fact ever be possible? Can they actually govern themselves?
