British Deal With al-Sadr Betrayed Iraqi People. Charlie, don’t be pissed, I didn’t write it.

More at Pajamas Media/ Omar and Mohammed Fadhil

The news about a secret deal between the British and anti-American cleric Moqtada al-Sadr did not come as a surprise to us. Britain’s war policy has been clear for the past several years: the country demonstrated no readiness to make sustained efforts in a prolonged war, nor did it act as a serious partner determined to win the conflict.

There are three aspects in this British betrayal. First, striking a deal with the enemy; second, selling an Iraqi city to the enemy of their Iraqi hosts and partners; and third, by not informing their American partners of their plans, enabling the U.S. military’s reliance on an untrustworthy partner — something the British military leadership turned out to be.

What’s worse — even assuming the “accommodation” was a thoughtful plan with good intentions — is that Britain upheld the deal even when the militias violated it. The militias did not renounce violence (attacks continued), and they did not switch to civil political activity. Still, the British didn’t take action.

To be fair, Britain deserves credit for being a good team member during the good days in the beginning of the war. They sent in some 40,000 troops and were enthusiastic about contributing to the quick collapse of Saddam’s defenses.

They sent the largest number of troops after the U.S. and celebrated the initial victory, showing themselves as allies of the U.S. But it looks like Britain wanted to share only the good days, nothing more. Things changed fast soon after. In fact, over the last two years, Britain has adopted a policy in Iraq that is opposite in direction to that of the U.S.

Bagram Air Base near Kabul, Afghanistan

As I passed through the Media Operations Center at Bagram Air Base today, I saw a CNN story contrasting Iraq and Afghanistan. My biggest beef with the story is that CNN continues to show footage of Marines involved in heavy combat in Ramadi every time they talk about the war. Unfortunately that the footage was shot in 2005. This is usually overlaid on a big screen when they have a talking head pontificating on the war. They’re just using it as background footage, but it gives the American people the subtle message that the fighting is still that intense – when in reality Iraq is now probably safer than Columbus, Ohio. It’s dishonest, and they should stop doing it. Believe me, nobody understands the need for exciting b-roll more than I do – but how about showing the Iraqi Security forces going on a raid instead of the worn-out old footage of Marines in a firefight that happened years ago?

The CNN piece also showed clips from an interview with General McKiernan, the commander of forces here. They touted it as an “exclusive,” but that’s not quite true, either. CNN requested the footage, but it was shot by a military combat camera crew – there was no CNN reporter present. The footage was then uploaded to, where it becomes public domain and is available to every media outlet on the planet – for free. As a matter of fact, here’s a link to the footage. It’s a bit of a stretch to call that an “exclusive.”

Russian jets attack Georgian town

A wounded Georgian woman lies in front of an apartment building, damaged by a Russian air strike, in the northern Georgian town of Gori, on Saturday, Aug. 9, 2008. Fighting raged in breakaway South Ossetia for a second day Saturday as Russia sent hundreds of troops into the separatist province, threatening to bomb more Georgian military bases to stop the bloodshed Moscow said has claimed 1,500 lives. Georgia, a staunch U.S. ally, launched a major offensive Friday to retake control of separatist South Ossetia. Russia, which has close ties to the province and posts peacekeepers there to protect citizens with Russian citizenship, responded by sending in armed convoys. (AP Photo/George Abdaladze)


If you click on the picture, it will view in a larger image. The wounded woman, is laying on a dead man.


Drumming fingers waiting for the Anti-War crowds to show. Surely they will, I mean it does involve their emotional ties to a Mother country, Georgia that is. Right?

P.S. Sell the Georgian’s the upgrade Stinger Missiles, GWB. I don’t think the Ruskies and Vlad have figured out why they got their asses kicked in Afghanistan, yet. Beside the fact that Vlad is still porking his new wife.
