More Tribes Opposing al-Qaeda

Published by at 10:06 am under All General Discussions,Iraq

The tide keeps turning on al-Qaeda in Iraq as more local tribes are taking the side of the Iraqi-US coalition forces and taking up arms against al-Qaeda and their brutal variant of Islam:

ore than 10 Iraqi tribes in the Baghdad area have reached agreements with U.S. and Iraqi forces for the first time to oppose al-Qaeda, raising the U.S. military’s hopes that a trend started in western Iraq is spreading here.
Some of the groups, which have members who fought alongside al-Qaeda in the past, have been providing useful intelligence to U.S. forces about their former allies, according to the U.S. military.

“They know where they live and who they are,” said Lt. Col. Rick Welch, a staff officer who works with tribes in the capital area. “They know how they operate.” Some tribes are also taking up arms against al-Qaeda allies.

As this trend continues it will spell the defeat of al-Qaeda and the Islamo Fascists in Iraq. Which means victory for Iraq and the US. We are on a path to success, not failure. No matter what the Surrendercrats and the SurrenderMedia fantasize. They have no control over what is happening on the streets of Iraq. That is being dictated by our military’s determination and by al-Qaeda’s brutality.

    Unfortunately for your case, Strata, you have already defined
    “Islamofascist” elsewhere on the site (ad infinitum and incorrectly)
    and by your definition almost all key players in Iraq qualify, not
    only foreign al Qaeda.

    In case further explanation is needed: from the USA Today

    “Most of the Baghdad tribes cooperating with U.S. forces are Sunni, Welch said, but he didn’t have a specific breakdown.

    Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said this week that his government objected to the arming of various tribes “because this will create new militias.”

    These “new militias” are Islamofascist in the Strata lexicon, but not to worry…all the exisiting militias, many of which permeate the
    Iraqi government…why they’re “Islamofascist” too!
