For all of you who insist Iraq is in the throes of a civil war, for all of you who feel the country has fallen into “sectarian violence,” for all of you who insist Sunni and Shiite terrorists would never cooperate . . .
Coalition Forces captured a suspected liaison to al-Qaeda in Iraq senior leaders, who assists in the movement of information and documents from al-Qaeda in Iraq leadership in Baghdad to al-Qaeda senior leaders in Iran.
Let me restate the last part: al-Qaeda senior leaders in Iran.
I have spent the last five months presenting the detailed evidence that al Qaeda and the Iranian mullahcracy were working together against us – and I’m not the only one (Bill Roggio). Yet almost no one seems willing to recognize this – neither the war critics (who would have obvious reasons to hide their heads in the sand) nor the war supporters seem willing to acknowledge that the Wahhabists, Ba’athists, and Khomeinists are allied with each other against America.
So will war critics please dispense with the idiotic myth that the violence is driven by “Iraqi hatreds” when it’s clear Tehran and al Qaeda are conspiring to dupe, use, and ultimately kill as many Iraqis as they can? Can they stop pretending or hoping that Iraq was a “diversion” from the Wahhabist, Ba’athist, and Khomeinist War (otherwise known as the War on Terror) when clearly neither al Qaeda nor Tehran think it is? Can they stop blaming the Iraqi people for being the victims of an asymmetric version of the Hitler-Stalin carve-up of Poland? Finally, can they at last acknowledge that the American forces in Iraq are nobly protecting the American and Iraqi peoples against common, vicious, and bloodthirsty foes?
In short, will the critics of this war – the supposed “realists” of the world – ever acknowledge reality?
