Iraqiranian Confusion

by Duckman GR

Regarding this dkos article, I got myself all confused. Because if the Sunni’s are fighting the Shi’ites, and the Iranians are backing the Shi’ites, and we’re backing the Shi’ites via the Purple Finger Club, and the Sunni’s are fighting us too, and the Shi’ites are fighting us also, and the Iranians are the Axis of Evil, then why aren’t why fighting the Shi’ites, and supporting the Sunni’s, instead of fighting the Sunni’s?

Maybe if we pulled out of Iraq the Sunni’s could concentrate their fighting against the Iranian backed Shi’ites, kind of like a proxy for us, and then, wait, I know, maybe the Iraqi Sunni’s could gain control of Iraq and launch a war against Iran to stop their nuclear Weapons of Mass Death and Destruction, and then maybe we can get more pictures of Rummy shaking hands with the next Iraqi dictator.

And wouldn’t that be the perfect end to this whole freaking nightmare?

Yes, it's all very confusing, especially when you factor in the republican culpability in the whole mess, from Raygun to Rummy

Here's a fine response to this fearmongering as political campaign bushco is trying to foist on this country and the world. Read the article, check out this journal even, but consider the words below.

The hypocrisy of the U.S. "war on terrorism" may be quite shameless, but this doesn't mean that anti-U.S. terrorism is a myth. It's a deadly serious matter that requires a serious response. The Bush administration has indeed responded -- with foreign invasions, high profile arrests that lead nowhere in particular, the black hole of Guantanamo Bay, endless hyped alerts, and the Patriot acts -- that is, with publicity and fear. But looked at practically, its "war on terrorism" is a fraud. It has only increased the dangers of terrorism abroad without protecting us from terrorism at home. It has used the issue of terrorism and the "war on terrorism" to further concentrate power and wealth in the hands of the few. Ashcroft has declared that those who criticize the Patriot Act are aiding terrorism.23 Bush says we are either with him or against him in his "war on terrorism." If we care about our safety, not to mention justice and liberty, we'd better be against him.
