'The Redirection' is Treason: Bring in the Trials, There have to be Trials!
The War in Iraq has had more unintended consequences than anyone in the Bush regime had imagined. One of them is a new US strategy to fund the enemy of the US troops. That's right--we are funneling money to the Sunnis, the very same Sunnis who are attached to Al Qaida in Iraq, and the "insurgency." Did anyone doubt that the US is actually fomenting the war that we are supposedly there to squelch? This should erase all such doubts.
Thanks to the US invasion, the removal of the Sunni-backed minority government, the de-Bathification, the disbanding of the Sunni military, the 'election' of the Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, and the free ride given to the Shiaa militias, the Shiites have gained the upper hand in Iraq.
There's one big
problem with this situation: The Shiites are also running Iran-the same
Iran that is reputedly bent on gaining nuclear weapons capability. Ooops!
Given this 'unintended consequence,' the US is backtracking and funneling money and support to the Sunnis.
The problem with this is that the Sunnis are heading the insurgency against the US military and are also the sect with significant ties to Al Qaida. In fact, Al Qaida is Sunni and Al Qaida in Iraq is a Sunni-backed organization! The new "Redirection" strategy of re-empowering the Sunnis (notice Cheney's recent snuggling up with the Saudis) is not only a backtracking on previous strategies; it involves funding those segments in Iraq that are responsible for most of the US deaths there!
Can anyone doubt that the Bush regime either had no idea what they were doing when they invaded Iraq, or else they wanted to create the very chaos and threats that they have created?
Likewise, a major part of the 'surge' is the 'surge' in Sunni capability-sponsored by the US government, i.e., the US taxpayers. The Bush regime is actually paying for both elements of the surge-the increase in troops and the increase in Sunni power. We are actually funding the enemies of our own troops, even as we send in more!!!
The Bush regime is not only 'giving comfort to the enemy,' they are giving ARMS to the enemy, while sending more troops into the jaws of death! They are not only 'aiding and abetting the enemy,' they are, for all practical purposes, the enemy itself. The 'redirection' is TREASON!
The US should indeed 'redirect' our fight with the enemy. We need to redirect our government in order to get rid of the traitors within! The Bush regime needs to be impeached, removed and tried for treason!
