Iraq's new coalition: the insurgents


www.guardian.co.uk

Seven of the most important Sunni-led insurgent organisations fighting the US occupation in Iraq have agreed to form a public political alliance with the aim of preparing for negotiations in advance of an American withdrawal....Speaking in Damascus, the spokesmen for the three groups - the 1920 Revolution Brigades, Ansar al-Sunna and Iraqi Hamas - said they planned to hold a congress to launch a united front within the next few weeks and appealed to Arab governments, other governments and the UN to help them establish a permanent political presence outside Iraq.

This is exactly what Iraq needs, leaders from within, people rising with the goal of creating an Iraqi government for the people of Iraq, with no outside influence.

Hmm well it remains to be seen if these guy can form any kind of government in southern and central Iraq after the coalition leaves the country. In northern Iraq the Kurds will fight anybody tooth and nail after they declare an independent state. The US is going to have mindful of Turkey and the possibility of another 1948 style war in what is now Northern Iraq.
Central Iraq in particular will just be one big blood bath.

Yes the end of the line is fast approaching for the coalition presences in Iraq political events in 08 should see to that.

The 'insurgents' aka freedom fighters trying to get the foreigners off their soil.

They are fighting the noble fight, similar to our ancestors attempting to rid the British from their home turf.

We have become the occupiers, the tyrannical abusers. When will people wake up to that reality?

i'm afraid i'm getting confused here...

In your OP link/snippet
there was the statement.....

"...appealed to Arab governments, other governments
and the UN to help them establish a permanent political presence outside Iraq."


just how is the Islamic Revolution from Iran or Hamas or Hezbollah
a grassroots indigenous Iraqi movement?? peopled by Iraqi's for Iraq??


what's needed is a permanent ceasefire, so the millions of expatriot refugee Iraqi's could return to their homeland...then maybe some
Iraqi leaders could emerge and a grassroots movement can bloom...



but the Iraqi people better be prepared to have a sizeable US presence there for the next 6o+ years, imho,

don't you know 'enduring bases' (Baghdad, Mosul, Taji, Balad, Kirkuk, Nasiriyah, Tikrit, Fallujah, Irbil...) & air bases including Mosul, Baghdad

Plus the 4-6 Super-sized Bases that resemble small towns, needed
for permanently housing the permanent occupation troops, are being quietly built by Army Engineers & 'no-bid Contractors' at this moment.
are to be a new part of the infrastructure of Iraq for decades to come...

I don’t understand what your asking St Udio, about Iran and Hezbollah?

But, The Iraqi's want national unity; these men would like a chance to govern their citizens, without outside nations putting their bit in.
They aren’t connected, or influenced to the men involved in starting this crime of hatred; they just want life to go back how it was......

Keep the UN outside, but close so that humanitarian crisis's that are ongoing, and will continue, can be managed.
While the government tries its hardest to restore the destruction of civilized life, that we enforced.

60yrs you say? We shouldn’t have been there for 1 day. This is not our land; a society should never have to suffer the harsh reality of military occupation.

What did Iraq do to us, to deserve us doing this to them?

The Fanatical Muslim mentality is something the Muslim faith will have to eradicate themselves. We will not be able to do it, infact our window of opportunity is shrinking for every day we continue this crime in Baghdad.

These Iraqi's genuinely want to make an effort at national unity, with no outside nations molding their views, who are we to tell a man he cannot attempt this?

Iv you believe in a revolution, you either succeed or die.
