Full Version: Civil War in Iraq "months away"
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
In Iraq it seems that Sunni militiamen have stopped targeting US forces and are focusing on attacks of Shai tribesmen within their own neighbourhood. Even punishing Shai militamen who launch attacks on US forces. The end result of this internal conflict will be that civil war breaks out in Iraq.

Quote:"A full-scale civil war will break out in the next few months. The Kurds only care about their independence. We the Sunnis will be crushed - the Shia have more fighters and they are better organised, and have more than one leadership. They are supported by the Iranians. We are lost. We don't have leadership and no one is more responsible for our disarray than [Abu Musab al-] Zarqawi, may God curse him,"

Benjamin, the link does not work. Also, I suspect that the Shia militia AND the Sunni militia will be the first order on the new government's agenda to be reigned in. If they are successful, no civil war.
Anyone with a brain knows Iraq has been in a civl war since Imam Ali's days. Give me a break. The difference is the Shiites now have the upper hand.

The Sunni Arabs brought this on themselves and they are reaping the whirlwind. Had they gone into the night quietly like South African whites,this could have worked out more humanely,but they didn't.

Reap what ya sow.
Yes, CIVIL WAR is here.
The US bush idiot misadventure has only stirred up a HORNET's NEST that was already there.
Don't these dumbo neocons ever read HISTORY?
AMAZING IGNORANCE.
Thaq,

No,they read little traitorous rants by self loathing Jews born in America who prefer Islamic radicals to the freedom of the USA and the men who made that a fact,our soldiers.

When will you offer your neck to your Islamic radical friends??? That's one place you can emigrate to freely/

When? Never. Next.
Thaq,

Yes,indeed you already have. By siding with the enemy of this nation,you have chosen loyalty to Islam above your citizenship in America.

It's past time you leave. Men like you would have been shot long ago by an objective government say around 1942 while you cheered on the German Nazis and stated you understood their resistance to America.

After all traitor to America ,Germany still hasn't attacked us.

You stink worse than Benedict Arnold in his worst day.

Let us hope that the Sunni militia can be reigned in, though whether this will prevent a civil war remains to be seen.
I read an interesting article that said the Sunnis are hoping that America invades Iran, in which case they would stop attacking American troops.

I didn't know that Sunni's, or Shia for that matter, were attacking US troops. I thought it was terrorists, who happened to be Sunni, or perhaps Shia. There is a huge distinction here Anon.
What we ought to do about right now is exit and allow the Shiites to rid Iraq of Sunni Arabs,kind of payback for their troubling us since 1991.

May be, but are you willing to give Iran the control of Iraq by proxy or otherwise?

Is that a serious post :?:
Muni,




On the grand scale of statecraft,would I right now abandon Iraq to that fate if I were the King? No,not now,but the day looms I MIGHT if I were the King.

The Sunnis remain opposed to the elective state,they remain committed to murdering Americans,so in theory,it is immoral for me to ask an American youngster to die to protect this person. It is also not the role of the USA to fight the fight of fanatic Shiites who are not committed to the elective government and THAT,TOO,is a concern of mine.

As I look at it,I would continue forward status quo,but I would hold out the option of leaving these frustrated people to their own destruction.

Ag,

No,I would use atomic weaponry to prevent much insolence from Iran and soon. With me as your King,you will use your strength against an insolent weak foe and not waste your youth fighting their fight their way via attrition.

I would also end the misery of the western regions of Pakistan in this manner.

I would then offer all Muslim leaders peace.

If they choose war,I'd incinerate them as well. No sense in lying,I believe in destroying the enemy like my father's generation did.
On the otherhand, I would work with the moderate and resonsible non-sectarian leaders to build a position of power in which to control the dissident criminals. The terrorists no longer look for regime change - they have given up that hope and strive only for criminal power - the power of the old nomad sheiks who controlled small areas - but ran from legitimate government. They hope for a patron to assist them, but the patrons cannot oppose the powerful and righteous government elected by the people. Unike Castro's Cuba that had to survive the abandonment of their Soviet patrons, today's terrorism have no land to call their own, nor open friends to help them.

With the modern era, they can no longer run away and hide. The true government can be patient and force them into the open and dispose of them.
