Iraq Less Safe Than 12 Months Ago

Just because U.S. combat missions are declared "over" doesn't mean that they are, in fact, over. Stuart Bowen Jr., U.S. Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, also claims the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad failed to cooperate during July’s quarterly report.

An Iraqi announcement on the future of 10,000-20,000 U.S. troops is expected any day.


  1. When/if this announcement is made.
    Iraq will be lit up like a xmas tree.

    OUT means OUT.
    What is it that they do not understand.

    They are like alcoholics.
    One is too many and 10-20K is not enough.

    Have you seen this?


  2. We know how the Kurds and some of the Shia will respond, but it will be interesting to see how the Sunnis react to an extended U.S. force. Washington hasn't done nearly enough to support Allawi. The U.S. plan has three goals: maintain a force in general, against Iran specifically and isolate al-Sadr politically. But what if Maliki is tossed in the end?

    And I've been keeping up with ISWF on Link TV.

  3. Ya, I watched it Again last night on Link.
    Every time I watch it I catch some thing new and different.

    IMO Maliki will be let loose to the jackals by both sides when they are done with him.

    He probably has a chateau picked out in the South of France. LOL
    Or maybe he can move to Crawford and be W's roomie. LOL

  4. He can't run off to Riyadh, can he? And Tehran doesn't appear any safer than Iraq for foreign assets.

  5. LOL
    He and others before him have all become captives in their own mind and body.
    Sooner or later most of them wind up in the South of France.
