Another Wingnut Welfare Program
I'm sure the Sunni insurgency is happy to eliminate, with extreme prejudice, some if not most of the genuine religious whack-loons floating around Anbar...in exchange for resupply AND salary.
The deaths of four erstwhile insurgents in a house raid merely underscores what should be pretty obvious at this point--in Iraq, human life is cheap. What's astonishing, and not in a good way, is that Team Bush is applying that particular rule to our own soldiers in the field, while delivering what amounts to aid and comfort to the enemy. Oh, sure, they'll "ally" with us--for now. But alliances in Mesopotamia shift as quickly as desert sand dunes, and watching this latest example of this administration's floundering and stupidity while insisting that all is well SHOULD be infuriating to anyone who actually gives a damn about this country and our military.
Team Bush is literally passing out welfare to insurgents who've killed Americans...and that's a VERY, VERY bad idea.
