Guilty or not, the Revolutionary Guard in training!
Officials said at least 250 and I have heard 350 people were killed and 320 wounded and as many as 450 Tuesday when suicide truck bombers attacked the villages of Qahtaniya, al-Jazeera and Tal Uzair, in northern Iraq near the border with Syria. The bombings highlight the kind of sectarian tensions the troop surge was designed to stop.
Al Qaeda in Iraq is predominantly Sunni, and Mixon said members of the Yazidi religious minority have received threatening letters, called "night letters," telling them "to leave because they are infidels." "This is an act of ethnic cleansing, if you will -- almost genocide when you consider the fact the target they attacked and the fact that these Yazidis, out in a very remote part of Nineveh province, where there is very little security and really no security required to this point," Mixon said. Sunni militants, including members of al Qaeda in Iraq, have targeted Yazidis in the area before. It is Sectarian tension all right but I suspect we are conveniently blaming Al Qaeda and the Sunni and I have heard too many times of documents being forged by all sides to believe those "night leters" were authentic without verification. I am concerned about a clandestine setup.
Bush now has his excuse to start further instigation with Iran and he is getting closer to attacking them as he has wanted from the beginning. That was only one of the many reasons for attacking Iraq to get our military in the middle east and he will stay in the middle of all this until he can further his middle east order. He is also keeping Al Qaeda alive as a focal point for us all the while we are giving Saudi Arabia multiple Billions in Arms that we sooner or later will be facing as Saudi Arabia is accused of aiding Al Qaeda and Sunni insurgents.
I expected this from the very beginning but I do not like what I am seeing as excuses are made or found whatever the case may be "because we cannot trust anyone at all", to further this still just developing middle east chaos so Bush can impliment what he thinks will be his new order. Despite what I fear is going to happen in 2008 I do not see success in the middle east and this whole mess there and around the world is just getting under way.
