"We will fight the Sunni till they have a clean heart towards Shiites"

<snip>

Unlike Mr Bush, Zarqawi could go to his grave rightly claiming: "Mission accomplished."

The two sides are dug in for the long haul. On one side, Sunni insurgency cells that now show great unity and common purpose have defeated a determined US counterinsurgency push to divide them.

On the other side, the Shiites use the resources of the US-trained and funded Iraqi security forces. A senior figure in Sadr's Mahdi Army told The Age: "We can get anything we need. We are a professional force and after the victory for Hezbollah in Lebanon we feel stronger and more powerful because we have seen what a Shiite force can achieve.

"We will fight the Sunni till they have a clean heart towards Shiites. But we have to fight the American too, because they are with the Sunni against us."

1. That war needs a good psychotherapist
A relationship counselor. I bet the third party would be told to get out of the middle of it. Too much Bushit going on.

3. Seems like any more it doesn't matter
how retarded your policies are, as long as you state them with conviction and have a press willing to trumpet that message 24/7, you can always claim the people support it. Our world is very sick and could use a good physic.
