Iran Sees Iraq as Major Al Qaeda Front… Why Don't Democrats?
Even the Iranians understand that Iraq is the battlefront against Al Qaeda.
Why don’t democrats?
From Bazteb News this morning:
Extremist Salafist forces are the main culprit behind sectarian conflicts in Iraq who are seeking to massacre Iraqi Shiites. In addition to the present situation, sectarian wars in Iraq have historical roots originating from Saudi Arabia. A large number of al-Qaeda forces entered Iraq after the American military attack in 2003 and turned the occupied country into an al-Qaeda front against the Americans, a scenario that encouraged the US to strip the Iraqi government off its security responsibilities to bring the unwanted chaos under control.
With no success in their front against al-Qaeda and after consultations with regional Arab countries, the Americans are now making efforts to pose Iran as the main force confronting them in Iraq.
Why then is it so hard for democrats to see this?
Why is it so hard for democrats to see that Iraq is the main front in the battle against Al Qaeda?
This is what Speaker Pelosi said just two months ago about Al Qaeda in Iraq:
House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters on Wednesday that she feels it is “sad” that President Bush continues to blame Iraqi insurgent violence on al Qaeda.
“My thoughts on the president’s representations are well-known,” Pelosi said. “The 9/11 Commission dismissed that notion a long time ago and I feel sad that the president is resorting to it again.”
“…There’s a lot of sectarian violence taking place, fomented, in my opinion, because of these attacks by al Qaeda, causing people to seek reprisal,” Bush said. “And we will work with the Maliki government to defeat these elements.”
It is sad. It’s sad that the democratic leaders still do not have a clue on how to fight our war on terror or even where to fight it.
