A new word in Iraq: "surge." Adding troops it seems causes the violence to increase, but maybe surging troops (sudden---kinda like shock and awe) will do the trick?
What is the trick, you ask? I'm not sure but I think it is a trick!
Apparently Iraqi soldiers hate "uniforms." I saw about 30 of them, each with an American guide holding his arm, practicing the other day on Tv, and if I counted correctly, they had on 30 different "uniforms." They also don't like hats or helmets. They also won't carry 80 pounds of gear as our soldiers do. One rifle and a few clips of bullets is about it. They also like to go home for supper. Also hard to formally pray six times a day and carry a rug.
They have no Humvees (can't drive), have no tanks, have no helicopters, have no planes, have no communications, have no bases.
They have no spare parts and no manufacturing to make any. They won't shoot one another.
Just who is fooling whom?

Well, as some conspiracy theorists have it, Al Qaeda does not really exist.

My own view is that the democrats do not really exist.

At any rate, is this story related? The timing of the "offer" is interesting. Do they think the upcoming "regime change" makes it likely?

Insurgents' Generous Offer

Okay - help me to understand - who is reponsible for this letter to the Democrats - what is the message they are trying to send to us? Who is offering the truce? What happened to us being 'trapped' between two factions of a civil war? I thought that there were no 'insurgents' and we were not fighting 'organized' terrorists. Does this mean that if we leave there will NOT be a civil war (anymore)? Why would they send a letter to Nancy Pelosi but not to the Republicans? Why the offer now? Why do they feel the Democrats are more amiable?

Help me to understand!!

I will not personally comment yet; however, I look forward to reading the comments. All are appreciated - regardless of your opinion or interpretation. Muddle and Git Real - chime in.

I especially look forward to the views of ArmyMajor and Basmati, the latter of which I find.... crass but politically correct ... (literally and figuratively) and the former of which is obstinate enough to represent the "right-wing".

After those two extremes, we should all be able to dissect this caustic communication with absolute lucidity. Smiling

The Media influenced the election more than guys hiding in caves and killing fellow Muslims.

I think there was a recent poll that said the media had 77% of stories negative to the Republicans and 19% positive. It's the old repeat a lie long enough and people will start to believe it.

The Mark Foley story broke and the Republicans should have watched that pervert closer years before. Out of control spending, no strong immigration legislation, no Social Security reform. No Al Queda had very little influence in my humble opinion.

I guess you still believe the media lost 'Nam & we are winning the War on Drugs.

Stories do not change votes very much. A final compilation of mistakes does. What are the medias to do, say that everything is wonderful? They say bad things because most things (direction) is bad.

Who knows what portion of the message has been edited out or translated loosely? This sounds like the same boogeyman-Osama's-gonna-get-you crap that was resurected 4 days before the '04 election. I'm not saying it has no value but, out of context, I'm not willing to assume it means that the sky is falling.

If you and I are always in agreement, one of us is likely armed and dangerous.

Or maybe it's not so funny after all.
