Hit & Run

The Ire of Iraqi Guardsmen


The latest carbomb in Baghdad provoked a very telling reaction that was captured by ABC News. I'm paraphrasing as I have no use for RealNetworks SuperPass to watch the video again, but one irate, distraught Iraqi guardsman rushed up to the camera to declare that if the bombers want to fight then they need to meet the Iraqi forces in the field like men.

I have no idea how widespread this sentiment might be, but it is exactly what is needed to build an Iraqi security force capable of beating back the terrorists.
