The situation in Iraq has taken a very dangerous turn. Events there in recent days are reminiscent of those that led to virtual civil war in 2006 and resulted in the need for a surge in U.S. troop levels, a new strategy and very heavy fighting. Indeed, the places where the violence has erupted are eerily familiar, as many were strongholds of al-Qaeda in Iraq at the outset of the surge, before the spread of the Awakening movement that fostered reconciliation between disaffected Sunni Arabs and the Shiite-led government in Baghdad. The recent events come on top of increasing incidents of horrific attacks by al-Qaeda in Iraq, with last month seeing the largest losses in years ...OBAMA INABILITY AND/OR UNWILLINGNESS TO NEGOOTIATE A TROOP DEPLOYMENT AND ROE WITH IRAQ IS WHY AL W=QAEDA AND IRAN HAVE MOVED IN.
EITHER THIS WAS GROSS INCOMPETENCE BY OBAMA OR HE WANTS THE ISLAMISTS TO WIN.
