Troop Build Up...

That's right, I won't call it a "surge", but this is not the first story I've read that reports successes with the recent Operation Arrowhead Ripper offensive. My main man Micheal Yon has been tear-assing around the Anbar providence and tells similar stories of Sunni's, having grown fed up with Al Queda, joining coalition and Iraqi forces in running them out. The NYT's embed reported that Arrowhead Ripper is working in all the areas he's tagged along into (can't link since the NYT is a pay site). Yon says that the Iraqi citizens of these towns have told stories of a gradual turn against Al Queda after the terrorist group began fazing in Shira and began killing folks who resisted. Yon relates a story told to him by a town mayor an elder, his wife, and 11-year old boy being invited to dine with an Al Queda Sheik. When they arrived at the Sheik's house, the boy was requested to go with some Al Queda guards. The next time his parents saw their child, he was sitting prostrate on a serving platter with an apple in his mouth and roasted like a pig. The Al Queda Sheik had served the boy as lunch to send a message. Yon also details the recovery of recently decapitated children's corpses discovered following combat operations, a clear sign Al Queda had been decapitating children in front of their parents.

Running Al Queda out of Iraq is not the end of our problems there by any stretch, but the Iraqi people are finally starting to get on board with the idea that these assholes are NOT their friends. The Sunni's have discovered this the hard way unfortunately, but are coming around.

We need to get out of Iraq that is for sure, but we ARE fighting Al Queda there and until we know that they are unwelcome there and can not use the place as their next home base, we need to be there to kill ever last one of the worthless pieces of shit.

Decapitating kids. Is there anything more repulsive than that?

This is one of the most disgusting things I ever read - I wonder if the parents of these kids think "war on terror" is nothing more than a bumpersticker.

Makes you wonder why a story like this is not covered by abc, cbs, nbc...
