Civil War (not the Marvel kind)

Well, it's gone and happened. US military leaders have finally admitted that Iraq is sliding into a Civil War.

Isn't that what everyone predicted would happen in the first place?

Rumsfelds response? He said this: Several times during the hearing, Rumsfeld expressed concern that the committee's back-and-forth would aid the enemy. "They're waging a psychological war of attrition," he said at one point. "They want us pointing fingers at each other rather than pointing fingers at them."

This is just too far-fetched to be believed.

Rumsfeld is saying this, essentially: "We're letting them win by discussing this. They're methods of war are so complex, even discussing them publicly is a victory for them. So, by questioning me, even in the slightest, you're letting the terrorists win."

What a jack ass.

We need to get the hell out of that situation. We need to pull back into a support role in surrounding countries and set up a Federated Iraq, wherein each of the major parties there (Kurds, Sunnis and Shiites) each hold a third of the country and can govern themselves. That's been the whole problem in the first place. The US wants to meld them all together and it's not going to work.

But, at the end of the day, I'm aiding the terrorists because I'm discussing it.
