Korea style force in Iraq in the middle of exploding middle east will be 9/11 and Custer's last stand with the same results!
As we are watching the rapid deterioration of the middle east I got to thinking about Bush's desire for a Korea style force in Iraq. knowing what is happening in the middle east and not just Iraq I couldn't figure out how the hell Bush could possibly think a Korea style force in Iraq could work and it dawned on me this morning.
This morning we learned that Bush's fist successful Democracy Palestine had fallen to Hamas. Palestinian security sources said. Fatah's Preventive Security headquarters in Khan Yunis is now under Hamas control. Hamas overpowered Fatah forces, taking several of the rival group's strongholds in northern Gaza, security sources said. Hamas gunmen could be seen perched atop buildings as residents sought shelter in their homes, the sources said.
Fighting over the past three days has killed at least 70 Palestinians and injured 180 more, 20 of them critically, medical sources said. Overnight gun battles killed six Fatah loyalists and militia members as Hamas moved to expand its grip on Gaza, Palestinian security sources said Wednesday. Israel has been drawn in of course as rockets were fired by Palestinian militants into Israel hitting a primary school with no casualties yet reported.
On Wednesday, Palestinian gunmen opened fire on protesters calling for a cease-fire in Gaza, killing one person as dozens ran for cover, hospital officials said. Video from the scene showed unarmed men, women and children waving flags and chanting when heavy gunfire erupted in the streets.
So much for U.S. requests for Israel to open the frontier and send emergency shipments of arms so Fatah could fend off Hamas. this issue I am afraid is not closed.
Heavy fighting continues between the Lebanese army and Islamist militants at a Palestinian camp which has been the battleground for Lebanon's bloodiest internal violence since the civil war. This also shows signs of spreading.
A war with Iran is getting closer as we now have warmongers openly calling for an attack on Iran. You have to think since Lieberman is leading the charge that he wants to do it to hopefully help Israel.
Amid heated debate over the issue of a cross-border offensive targeting Kurdish rebels, Turkey sent large contingents of reinforcement soldiers, tanks and armored personnel carriers to its border with Iraq. Turkey has asked us and Iraq to destroy PKK bases or they would go in there and do it themselves as their patience has run out.
Iraqi Kurdish groups have threatened to resist a Turkish incursion. If U.S. forces -- who are stretched thin across Iraq -- take action, they risk alienating Iraqi Kurds, the most pro-American group in the region. If they don't, they risk increased tensions -- and possibly worse -- with two powerful rivals.
Also Saboteurs blew up the two minarets of a revered Shiite shrine in Samarra early Wednesday, in a repeat of the 2006 attack that shattered its famous golden dome and unleashed a wave of retaliatory sectarian violence that still bloodies Iraq. Sunni extremists of Al Qaeda were quickly blamed. There is also evidence that it was an inside job by the Iraqi security force and additional U.S. troops have been asked for to help quell this all.. http://www.cnn.com/...
With Shiite blaming us that of course will make things worse and to top it off we are arming the Sunni's. How callous can Bush be?
Amidst all this and more it would be absolute suicide to set up a permanent Korea style force. The only possible outcome would be annihilation of the forces that were left there unless they were attacked mercilessly, were being overrun, and the American citizens became outraged and demanded retribution. Sound familiar? Bush would sacrifice the troops to get the country behind his desire to stay in the middle of this still just beginning chaos so he can further his new order.
