You Heard It Here First
The Arab capacity for ignoring reality is truly monumental. But even this heroic ability cannot stand up to the weight of real world experience. It's just too bad that this congenital disability has prevented the sunni Arab community in Iraq from making decisions based on the central fact that should have been apparent for the past 3 years. That being, that the people most in need of a continued U.S. presence in Iraq are... the sunni Arab community!
As sectarian violence soars, many Sunni Arab political and religious leaders once staunchly opposed to the American presence here are now saying they need American troops to protect them from the rampages of Shiite militias and Shiite-run government forces.
And remember, you heard it here first.
