Letter to the Editor
Now that Iraq has degenerated into a civil war, we have to figure out which group to side with. Most Iraqis are Shiite, the the elected president of Iraq is Shiite. Saddam and Osama are both Sunnis. So I guess we side with the Shiites. But – our friends in Saudi Arabia, the guys Bush has been kissing, they’re Sunnis. The vast majority of Muslims are Sunnis. And our friends in Saudi Arabia made it clear to Cheney the there were going to have to side with the Sunnis if we sided with the Shiites.
Iran is part of the Axis of Evil, but they are Shiites, just like Hezbollah, just like the Syrians, as well as the leaders of the militias that we are trying to get rid of. So we’re going to help the Iranians, Syrians, and Hezbollah conquer Iraq. What would Reagan have done? When Reagan was president we are supporting the other side. Saddam and Osama bin Laden were our best buddies. Wow – this is really confusing. Maybe that’s our problem. Maybe the reason we’re not winning this war is because we haven’t figured out who the enemy is yet?
Fortunately we have a president who has the solution to the problem. Let’s double down. Send in more troops. The one thing that brings Sunni and Shiites together is killing Americans.
