Iraq government (and not U.S. Commanders) are imposing this Baghdad curfew,
well that's a new twist, but its probably just a political move more than anything...
as the scuttlebut has it that Iraqi military & police forces are not held in high regard, as they're basically 'fence sitting' and not really
committed to backing U.S.
+considering that the al-Qaida #2 man has just released an 18 minute video
+considering that the Holy month of Ramadan is just starting
+ considering that the escalating civil war is almost inescapable
= an initial 'test run' of 'Iraq standing up...so the We can stand-down' scenario
which will play well for the War-on-Terror party & GWBush administration
in the upcoming election cycle
And IF the Iraqi curfew completely falls apart...and requires the US forces to assist,
then the GWB administration will still win & will even press for more troops to be deployed
we continue to be between a Rock & a Hard Place, !
