Such Wisdom From Afar

If you took seriously The Herald's reporting from Iraq, you'd think the latest stoush between Iran's surrogate Al Sadr and Iraq's security forces in Bazra signals the end of the world for Iraq.

'The 'surge' hasn't worked, it was an illusion' is the common theme.

But then, what would you expect when the sources are regular writers for Al Independent, Al Guardian and Al Reuters? A more deluded and demented bunch of Bush haters would be hard to find, even in the souks of Teheran. These guys write as though they know the inner workings of all the parties and players and then some.

Don't be surprised, therefore, to find both this morning's articles simply are both plain wrong.

The lead story on this morning's 0300 Radio Left Wing News tells the world that Al Sadr has ordered his forces to withdraw from Bazra and Baghdad so that negotiations may ensue.

It does not seem to occur to these poor leftist buggers who are so desperate for Iraq to disintegrate that the people on the ground there might just know a bit more than a gaggle of worn out shills for the enemy. The giveaway is found at odd places in their text where you will find (if you look hard) grudging admission that 'maybe General Petraeus knows something we don't.'

"...Or maybe Petraeus and Maliki know something about the weaknesses of the Mehdi army that nobody else does.."

You bet he does, fellers. So does Prime Minister Malarkey. They are not siting on their arses in London, writing junk.

Silly Philly also was crowing yesterday at 'the mess in Iraq.' Well, it looks like a pretty successful mess to those without an agenda for defeat.

Maybe it's time for Al phil to change his blog name to 'The Harbour Bridge' where his traffic counter seems to be lodged. Millions of hits/cars through the place each day but only one a week stops - and then it's only to have a break down.

But Adolf, the left DO have an agenda for defeat.
They want Al Queda to win.
That is what Iraqis fear from a US withdrawal.
Think of it, a rag bag of Islamic terrorists is who they support, regardless of the effect of this on ordinary people.
Let the left toss out their beliefs for a secular state , women's rights, gay rights, etc: rather than see Bush succeed in delivering peace and freedom to Iraq, they would much rather support a bunch of barbaric religious theocrats.
That's what much of the left are.
People without honour.
People without principles.
People who take their bush derangement so far, their hatred of their own side, that they prefer alien cultures, the enemy, even at the expense of values they supposedly hold dear.

Here's some more grist for phil's mill. From someone on the spot who actually knows what's going on.

Bill Roggio reports:

Six days after the Iraqi government launched Operation Knights’ Charge in Basrah against the Mahdi Army and other Iranian-backed Shia terror groups, Muqtada al Sadr, the Leader of the Mahdi Army, has called for his fighters to lay down their weapons and cooperate with Iraqi security forces. Sadr’s call for an end to the fighting comes as his Mahdi Army has taken serious losses since the operation began. . . .Since the fighting began on Tuesday 358 Mahdi Army fighters were killed, 531 were wounded, 343 were captured, and 30 surrendered. The US and Iraqi security forces have killed 125 Mahdi Army fighters in Baghdad alone, while Iraqi security forces have killed 140 Mahdi fighters in Basra.

The one Weapon Of Mass Destruction we found in Iraq was the Iraqi's insane obsession with killing each other because of their Sunni-Shia-you-name-it religious differences. Removing Sadaam took the stopper out of the bottle, and they just couldn't wait to get at each other. How were we innocent westerners to know they were this mad? Weapons Of Mass Derangement, I'd call them.
