The NYT, tells us once again, that the main contingent of ‘freedom fighters’ from out of town so to speak.. in Iraq comes from..Wait for it.
Saudi Arabia and Libya, both considered allies by the United States in its fight against terrorism, were the source of about 60 percent of the foreign fighters who came to Iraq in the past year to serve as suicide bombers or to facilitate other attacks, according to senior American military officials. The data come largely from a trove of documents and computers discovered in September, when American forces raided a tent camp in the desert near Sinjar, close to the Syrian border. The raid’s target was an insurgent cell believed to be responsible for smuggling the vast majority of foreign fighters into Iraq.
They also go on to point out another obvious fact: The records also underscore how the insurgency in Iraq remains both overwhelmingly Iraqi and Sunni.-How many times does it have to be printed in black and white before BushCo will quit filling our ears with bs?
Your guess is as good as mine. But I do notice that Iran isn’t even ‘on the map’ so to speak..

The police at the Italian airport were looking for drugs. What they found was incredibly more important to the state of the world, the Middle East specifically. From AP:
Their discovery led anti-Mafia investigators down a monthslong trail of telephone and e-mail intercepts, into the midst of a huge black-market transaction, as Iraqi and Italian partners haggled over shipping more than 100,000 Russian-made automatic weapons into the bloodbath of Iraq.
Damn..everyone’s getting in the armament ‘bidness’ don’t ya know? Where are the Chinese guns shipping in from? Afterall..War is Good Bidness! Why shouldn’t everyone make a buck?
With friends like the Russians..you don’t need enemies..snark button on there folks 🙂 It’s getting uglier and uglier ain’t it? Place your bets..
It was very hard not to hoot and holler when I read this article in the LAT website late tonight.I mean really, who the hell are the Saudi’s kidding? Its still the Sunni’s versus the Shia’s and I highly doubt those rat bastards that bred the majority of the 9/11 hijackers are doing squat to stem the tide of Saudi insurgents flooding into Iraq. But still..check out what their foreign minister had to say on the subject:
This all came up because Condo and Gates..the traveling snake-oil sales team just paid a visit to Saudi Arabia. They are on their world tour evidently. Kissing some ass and handing out arms and munition promises to the *cough*loyal Bushies.
Gawd..give me and effin break.
