Arming the insurgents that were happily picking you off a few weeks ago might seem like less than an intelligent idea to most people. But to the twin-genius team of Chimpy and Petraeus, it is just another blind maneuver in a catalog of blind maneuvers.
It might seem amazing to you that the Prime Minister of Iraq would even have to point out the dangers of this policy, as they’d be apparent to any 10 year old with a functioning mind. And yet, Maliki feels he has to point out the blatantly obvious. The problem here is his audience-the blatantly stupid.
Surely Maliki realizes the moronic monkey never made a mistake? Of course, it must be Maliki that is wrong. And if Maliki knows what’s good for him he’ll sit his ass in the peanut gallery and keep his mouth shut. Chimpy deals with you real quick once you get to questioning his infallible wisdom. Of course it makes perfect sense to pass out guns willy-nilly in a country where about 8 in every 10 people hate your guts (and you’re outnumbered by around 200 to 1.) Who couldn’t see the wisdom in this?
Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Al Maliki warned that US troops sometimes create new militias by arming Iraqi tribes, urging that such decisions be left to his government, in comments published on Saturday.
“Some field commanders make mistakes … by arming tribes sometimes, and this is dangerous because this will create new militias,” Maliki said in an interview put out on Newsweek magazine’s website.
“I believe that the coalition forces do not know the backgrounds of the tribes. It is a job of the (Iraqi) government,” he added.
The premier said his administration seeks “to arm some tribes that want to side with us, but on the condition that we should be well aware of the tribe’s background and sure that it is not connected with terror.”
He said arming such groups “should be under the control of the state and we should have guarantees that it will not turn into a militia.”
