Armed Sunnis in Iraq: potential short-term gains, long-term risks (AP) 07/03/07
BAGHDAD: The U.S. tactic of using armed Sunni tribesmen in the fight against al-Qaida in Iraq offers short-term gains to weaken the insurgency, but could set the stage for a full-scale sectarian civil war when the Americans begin to draw down their forces.
So, schrub is using questionable tactics to make his "surge" look like it is working, knowing that these tactic is going to make things worse in the long run. Is this another one of ROVE'S carefully choreographed 'show' or a real new way out?
