Iraq Deadlier Now Than a Year Ago

To expect a bunch of savages to be civil to each other let alone to a foreign military is beyond comprehension, and a mistake.

You can not change these peoples minds, we give them peace and stability and all they want is death and destruction of their fellow neighbors because they are a different religious sect or from a different town.

The Shiites do not like the Sunnis, the Sunnis do not like the Shiites, they both hate the Kurds the Kurds hate both of them.

This is a good reason to pull out of these Muslim countries immediately after our missions are complete, and let them continue to kill each other off.

It is the Islamic way.

BAGHDAD – Frequent bombings, assassinations and a resurgence in violence by Shiite militias have made Iraq more dangerous now than it was just a year ago, a U.S. government watchdog concludes in a report released Saturday.

The findings come during what U.S. Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction Stuart W. Bowen Jr. called "a summer of uncertainty" in Baghdad over whether American forces will stay past a year-end withdrawal deadline and continue military aid for the unstable nation.

"Iraq remains an extraordinarily dangerous place to work," Bowen concluded in his 172-page quarterly report to Congress and the Obama administration on progress -- and setbacks -- in Iraq. "It is less safe, in my judgment, than 12 months ago."

The report cited the deaths of 15 U.S. soldiers in June, the bloodiest month for the U.S. military in Iraq in two years. Nearly all of them were killed in attacks by Shiite militias bent on forcing out American troops on schedule.

It also noted an increase in rockets launched against the heavily fortified Green Zone in Baghdad, where government offices and foreign embassies are located, as well as constant assassination attempts against Iraqi political leaders, security forces and judges.

Additionally, the report called the northeastern province of Diyala, which borders Iran and has an often volatile mix of Sunni and Shiite Muslims and Kurds among its residents, "very unstable" with frequent bombings that bring double-digit death tolls.
