More lessons from an Iraqi. As usual, all emphasis is mine.
If you think that Iraqis aren't doing enough, then you're being mislead by your media. Thousands of people are applying to be members of IP, FPS, and the civil defense force. They are begging for the security to be in their hands. We know how to handle those scum. The Americans are more interested in being nice and all about human rights and free speech and stuff. We have our own Law and court systems which we can use but the CPA won't allow us to. They are being too lenient and forgiving on our expence. If you think that is what is required to build a successful democracy then you're too deluded. You don't know the first thing about the Iraqi society.
For one, anyone who doesn't get all their news from the normal liberal pipeline KNOWS that the media isn't showing everything that's going on in Iraq. That's been proven. So it's no surprise that an Iraqi is the one who's making this statement.
And second, I honestly believe that the scariest thing we can do to the terrorists who are attacking Iraqis is give those who were attacked some guns, maps, and the radio frequencies to artillery or air support, and turn them loose. Giving these people the ability to defend themselves should be paramount.
Third, the Iraqis know who's doing this, and they're pissed.
Another thing I'm sure you haven't seen in your news. There are paintings on the walls all over Baghdad warning Arab foreigners from a bloody revenge if they keep messing with our affairs. Iraqis are openly calling the GC to quit the Arab League.
I think we should be stepping back and supporting those Iraqis who are out for terrorist blood. They seem willing, why aren't we?
