Great Wisdom From The Who

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

In Iraq, the names have changed, the sect has changed, but it sure likes like the game remains the same.

As the American military pushes the largely Shiite Iraqi security services into a larger role in combating the insurgency, evidence has begun to mount suggesting that the Iraqi forces are carrying out executions in predominantly Sunni neighborhoods.

Hundreds of accounts of killings and abductions have emerged in recent weeks, most of them brought forward by Sunni civilians, who claim that their relatives have been taken away by Iraqi men in uniform without warrant or explanation.

Some Sunni men have been found dead in ditches and fields, with bullet holes in their temples, acid burns on their skin, and holes in their bodies apparently made by electric drills.

This Frankenstein's monster we are creating in Iraq sure looks a lot like the one we deposed. Both are equally charming.

And this, in a nutshell, is why we are so hated in that part of the world. Our "allies" are all ruthless dictators who terrorize their own people.
