A long and detailed "open" letter was just published in a newspaper in Kitabat, Iraq urging the various resistance forces there to unite under a
central command to fight the United States and its puppet government. It is urging that all groups, Sunni, Shiite and Kurd unite for the goal of
freeing Iraq from the occupiers. It goes on to urge them to adopt the Vietcong model.
An 'Open Letter' to the Iraqi Resistance; Call for 'Joint Action'

Iraq Kitabat Original Article (Arabic)
To all the organizations, fronts, and fighting resistance movements in Iraq: warm nationalist greetings.
I write this open letter certain that it will find its way into your hands and that it will be viewed and read by the Iraqi people. May God bless you
and help you in your cause, strengthen your hearts and your footholds, and make you a part of those who never run in fear (Quran: If you abide by
Allah's rules he will bestow victory upon you and strengthen your position).
I begin by saying that Allah's hand strengthens those who are united (Quran: All be faithful to Allah and never disperse). I want to say that it is
always of great benefit to learn from the experience of others. Let us learn the lessons of history and develop plans that can be executed quickly.

Well ain't this a fine kettle of fish! This letter which is quoted in full on the link provided seems to be calling for the ouster of the United
States but Iran as well. If these disparate groups have caused so much death and damage without a central command as it were, unified they would be
far worse. It also seems to contradict the primary bush assertion that the majority of the resistance is financed and backed by Iran, rather it is as
it has been presented in other sources, a more homespun effort, coupled with a growing civil war.
It seems to me, that we are simply damned there...we stay we are damned to bleed and die, and if we go, the nation will continue to unravel until
it either breaks apart into separate states, or its neighbors devour the remains, if only for peace on their doorsteps.
What dogs of war have you unleashed Mr. Bush? Certainly not the ones you wanted.
