Newsflash....it's official, the people in charge, the ones making the decisions for the American forces in Iraq have officially LOST THEIR MINDS!!!
Latest reports are that the U.S is now arming Sunnis in Iraq to battle their old Al Qaeda allies...who are now their enemies. The thought goes like this...
"The enemy of my enemies is my friend"

The Daily Show did a brilliant analysis on this by looking at who are their the U.S enemies, hence who could be their friends...went like this
Enemy of the US * Their Enemy/US Friend
Al Qaeda * Sunni Insurgents
Sunni Insurgents * Shia Death Squads
Shia Death Squads * Iraqi cleric Moqtada Al-Sadar
Iraqi cleric Moqtada Al-Sadar * Al Qaeda

So obviously anyone who is an enemy, could also be a friend....just one thought comes to mind...In the past, didn't the US use this same technique for little groups like...The Taliban fighting the Russians, Saddam Hussain fighting Iran....oh, and Iran for figting Saddam Hussain...does anyone else think this may end in tears???
