Turning a corner in Iraq

I'm sure a few others have enjoyed the give and take in the comments section between our resident "lefty" and an anonymous poster regarding Bush and oil and alleged lies in the "Court Watching" thread. Here's a little noticed article that might give a hint of things shaping up in Iraq.
It has been said by numerous persons that the US can't win the war on the ground in Iraq, but that it has to be won by the Iraqi people. Given that the "insurgency" has switched tactics once again and are now actually targeting friendly arab diplomats, we can only hope the "insurgents" are fading.
Thanks to Captain's Quarters for both story links.

Thank you,Mr. Moderator, both of those articles were interesting. I enjoy this site much.

The point however, is after they are done fighting amongst themselves they shall again turn their fury to the USA.

Now, the following statement shall anger some folks, especially including my "tool" buddy, but....

Decades of US policy against Arab countries has come home to haunt us, or in the words of Macolm X,"the chickens have come home to roost."

I'll disagree with you there. Once they are done fighting among themselves, the foreign fighters will be gone and the Sunni's will join the political process and a true democracy will take root. And as history proves time and again, democracies seldom, if ever, go to war with one another. Bring on the Capitalism!

LOL, LOL, I know you're pulling my leg on that one! There shall be no "true" democracy in Iraq, and even less freedoms once we pull out of there.

Capitalism is the tool of the rich to hold down the working man.

The next thing "leftisthebest" will be saying is President Bush had the 2012 Olympics taken from France and given to the Brits because of France's opposition to Iraq and the Brits' support for us.

We aren't pulling out unless a democrat gets elected. We're building huge airbases and such there. We'll be there 40 or 50 years from today, just like in Europe and Korea.

As for capitalism being a tool to hold down the working man, I'd LOVE to see your degree in economics. Even the democratic party embraces (heavily regulated) capitalism. Even Red China is embracing capitalism.

The wealth must be shared among all, even if it is capitalism. The poor of America have been ignored by government, especially this administration. If not for programs from private sources, such as churches, things would be terrible.

A rising tide lifts all boats. Look at your history. The number of families living below the poverty line is smaller than ever and keeps getting smaller...and it ain't because they're redefining "poverty." It's because everyone is better off.
