A Master Stroke

In a previous post I described what I believe is the main reason for the US presence in Iraq. In case you need a refresher I'll restate this reason:

WE ARE IN IRAQ BECAUSE WE WANT TO DRAW OUR ENEMIES OUT INTO A FIGHT ON FOREIGN SOIL RATHER THAN ON AMERICAN SOIL!

I fervently believe this because it makes so much sense given what has happened in the last year and change. You must look at every piece of news that comes out of Iraq, whether good or bad, from this perspective. Once you learn to see the conflict in Iraq for what it really is, it all makes perfect sense. The daily gun battles, the rounding up of Hussein loyalists, the killing of Al-Zarqawi or Bin Laden followers, the destruction of arms caches, the finding of mustard and nerve gas (in case you hadn't noticed the scant reporting...we are finding Weapons of Mass Destruction), the dollars and resources our enemies our undoubtedly channeling into Iraq...all of it...is happening over there not here.

...and it is getting even better. A recent story posted at Al-Sabah, a Middle Eastern news source, described something wonderful and something new that is helping America in its fight against the terrorists as well as helping the good people of Iraq fortify their free and prosperous future. The Iraqis are now using their intimate knowledge of their own country to locate, target, and exterminate the enemies of freedom.

We've managed to get Arabs who are seeking freedom and prosperity to help us kill the enemies of the free world.

This isn't brilliant...It is a MASTER STROKE!!!


The story I am talking about follows:

HAIFA SUCCESSFUL OPERATION, AN ATTACK CARRIED OUT BY NATIONAL GUARD
Baghdad, As-Sabah , July 10, Page 1
In an operation to attack dens of terrorism in Baghdad, a platoon of the Iraqi National Guard has carried out a successful operation Wednesday against groups of Saddam's remnants and a number of Al-Zarqawi followers who were gathered in four buildings in the said street. That operation comes as a practical indication to transfer the initiative of the attack to the hand of the National Guard. "An accurate intelligence information reported a group of Saddam's men and Al-Zarqawi followers were crowded in four buildings in Haifa street" Mr. Hazim Sh'lan the minister of defense elaborated, adding that the operation started in installing search points in front of these buildings for instigating the hostile elements who thought they could control the battalion of the national guard. Clarifying the details of the operation, the minister said that the battalion was able to be sheltered and specify the hostile fire sources further for cordoning the four buildings in pure Iraqi efforts, saying that the multi-national forces took the role of the monitor by the helicopters. Fighting were occurred from floor to another, from flat to another, about 19 terrorists killed and nine others arrested. Meanwhile one member of the National Guard was killed and 12 others wounded. Among the prisoners and dead were a number of Arab infiltrators.
