Bush failed policy in Afghanistan – Iraq.
Posted by QB on October 8, 2006
The Iraqi Sunni resistance is who were trying Shias to stand up against the US occupation since 2003 finally succeeded when US troops and Iraqi forces first time engaged in fierce battle yesterday. Sunni resistance had some success in the beginning of US occupation when they start getting cooperation from Muqtada Al Sadr Mahdi army. Sunni resistance when were besieged in Fulluja Mutada Al Sadr Mahdi army did provided them some support and cooperation according to some independent reports from inside Fulluja. Shias even provided the much needed food shelters medicines for the displaced poor Fulluja citizens.
US military did a stupid mistake by issuing arrest warrant against Muqtada Al Sadr in murder case which resulted in Mahdi army clashes with US troops. Muqtada Al Sadr and his followers take refuge in Imam Ali Mosque in Najaf and with Grand Satan Sistani the matter was resolved peacefully without arrest or Muqtada Al Sadr murder. These clashed resulted in casualties on US and Mahdi army side with many more civilian casualties. Muqtada Al Sadr lost support of the majority of the Shias when Grand Satan Sistani disapproved his approach of liberating Iraq.
Sunni resistance since then tried all the tricks to bring back Shias to take stand against occuption US military by attacking their most sacred mosques and and attacks on their religious processions. The Sunni resistance bombed one of the Shias most sacred Golden mosque which started the real conflict between Sunnis and Shias. Sunni resistance had the better plan which they executed effectively and now armed clashes escalate with Mahdi army like Fulluja and Ramadi than US military Generals are idiots who did not see this coming. Rumsfeld Rice and Bush have few phrases for Iraq not a real policy and plan for success.
The other problem is Iraqi forces which must have Sunnis, Shias and Kurds and US military will be using them strategically because of sympathies to their own people. US troops can only use Kurds against Sunnis and Shias who will show no mercy or sympathy for them which again creates more hatred and ethnic division within Iraq. US troops using Sunnis against Shias and Shias against Sunnis this will create more sectarian division. The ethnic and religious bindings will always be the hindrance for Iraqi forces to operate effectively.
US troops now has to fight Sunnis resistance and Shia full blown resistance if the clashes with Mahdi army continues. US military will face another problem which is Iraqi forces sittting behind or leaving the scene when they have to fight and kill their own people like what happened in Fulluja when most the Iraqi forces abandoned the battlefield.
The Afghanistan situation is not rosy with escalting attacks on NATO forces and again the Afhan Pashtoons will always have symphaty for Talibans and NATA can only use Tajiks against Talibans who will take their revange against them whenever they see the oppportunity.
The Bush wars on both fronts are not going very well and I can say with certainity that they have lost both wars.
