There’s a new reason for Canadians to be happy they never sent our “peacekeeping” forces into Iraq.
In a move straight out of Orwell’s 1984, the USA has started arming Sunni insurgent groups that have turned on Al Queda in Iraq. These are the same Sunni groups that blow up American soldiers with improvised explosive devices, kill hundreds of civilians with suicide bombings in crowded markets and drill holes in the back of their prisoners with power tools. The Sunni militias haven’t stopped doing these things, mind you – they’ve just trained their guns on the other bad guys for the moment.
As John Stewart says on the Daily Show, this plan is so crazy that… well, it’s just so freaking crazy.
