Why Are The Iraqi Forces Absent From Matador? This As Islamothugs Gun Down Iraq Security Chiefs

Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives

Have you been wondering why the Iraqi forces aren't side by side our Marines while we clean out the terrorist haven in western Iraq? Although no one seems to be asking that question, here's the official Iraqi answer anyway:

The Australian

(...) Iraqi officials refused to be drawn yesterday on the reasons for the absence of Iraqi army forces from the campaign, which pits more than 1000 US marines against the core militants of the uprising.

(...) But informed sources say new Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari insisted Iraqi forces should not take part so as to prevent a perception of an open fight between largely Shia and Kurdish elite army brigades and the Sunni insurgents.

Sounds reasonable, but why should we give a damned about the sunnis' feelings about anything, after all, didn't they chose on their own to support the former Baathists and not show up for the election? Meanwhile, back in the jungle called Bhagdad, the attacks against Iraqi army and police personnel continues:

(...) AS fighting continued in the far west of Iraq, and efforts to draft the country's new constitution began, insurgents stepped up their bid to keep the country in chaos yesterday, targeting military and police leaders in Baghdad.

(...) A senior army general, Iyad Imad Mehdi, and a prominent police chief, Jamal Ahmed Hussein, were killed when they were gunned down in separate attacks in the capital as reports of clashes between US forces and rebel formations in remote Anbar province emerged.

(...) US sources denied claims by an Iraqi government representative in the border town of Al Qaim that two US helicopters had been shot down.

(...) Violence aimed at broader targets also flared in Baghdad. A car bomb exploded near a busy market and cinema in the east of the city, killing at least 17 people and wounding 65, police said. The explosion of the parked car also set fire to a nearby apartment building and about 15 parked vehicles in the Jadida district.
