The CIA and the NSA told Presbo that the troop pullout from Iraq would leave a chaos-filled power vacuum where the US had no leverage or say-so and the there would be massive outbreaks of sectarian violence.
72 people were blown to bits with bombs there yesterday.
The Shi’ite-led government issued warrants against the highest politically placed Sunnis this past Monday, the day after the US troop withdrawal was completed.
It’s like all of the massive expenditures of taxdollars and American lives there has been for naught. They are hell-bent on setting up a single faction power-broker to run the show, just like Saddam again. Under Saddam, there was regular persecution of the more than a million Chistians that lived in Iraq. Thanks to our efforts, there are now less than a third of that number left for the Islamist sects to target.
Bigger problem than the power vacuum in Iraq is the leadership vacuum….
in the US.
