Samarra Attack, the Last Straw?

"The situation in Baghdad is bad, bad, bad. I had to flee work early and return home after news of large protests in Shi'ite districts, and several attacks against Sunni mosques in the Baladiyat, Sha'ab and Dora districts by angry rioters. Sunnis are being blamed for the attack against a Shia holy shrine in Samarra, a largely Sunni town.

The streets look empty now, and all stores seem to be closed. I can hear gunfire and American helicopters and jets circling the skies.

I'll update again when I get a grip on what is going on. Things look tense enough."

Mohammed descended on a cloud couldn't couldn't keep these idiots from self destruction. I have come to the conclusion that it would take some really evil, immoral, pathological personality (no, not Bush) to keep these folks from each others throats for any significant period--another Saddam (again, not Bush) to claim the exclusive rights to evil within Iraq's borders. As it is, we are looking at more of the same until the population segregates itself by migration/killing with a lot of mini tyrants/tribal chiefs, then we can hope they maintain some form of federation to share the oil profits. This is an ancient blood fued that is only going to get bloodier until they get enough distance between one another and the worst among them die out. Radical Islam is fighting for its life and the modern world is to blame--making us the big target. We need to learn to live with it and be glad they are staying over there for now where we can more easily kill them off.

Do you know the history of the German Reichstag fire? During the formation of a government in which the Nazis were not assured of a majority or Hitler as Chancellor, the Party burned down the Reichstag and 'captured' a retarded Danish man who had a Communist Party membership card in his pocket along with a book of matches and a can of gasoline. Look for some wannabe to come up with a retarded Danish American Sunni bomber with tattoos of Muhhamed cartoons on his chest as a patsy. Then see who would use the furor to become the Islamic Fuhrer. There are several known candidates for that job, not all Iraqi, and a lot of Islamists looking for someone to fill that position. Likely there are more of them today than yesterday.

Yea, but aren't we supposed to be there to prevent just what your describing from actually happening? What you describe would not stay within Iraq, it would have no borders. Did you see where Sadr was in Lebanon, and rushed back to Iraq, telling his Lebanese friends to say calm. The ME is a tinder box waiting to burn, and with it the worlds economy. Bush is slowly losing control of Iraq, and unfortunately for us and for the Iraqis, and the world, I do not see anyone waiting in the wings to walk in and pick up the slack

I have said it before the enemy we are fighting is smart and no one even know who he really is, or at least know one is saying. He acts and does not show his hand, plays his card close. We keep walking right into the punch, sooner or later, he's going to deliver the knock out blow. hen it will be to late to even care who he really is. And I am afraid that this administration is so full of itself that they are not even looking.
