Re: Rivals


Cliff’s Zarqawi-Saddam post is a good one. The idea that ideological rivals can’t strikes deals has always struck me as comic book logic. In the real world it’s a very common tale. Does nobody remember the Hitler-Stalin Pact of Steel?

Besides, Zarqawi is now officially a “prince” of al-Qaeda. You would think that all of the folks who want us to get out and soon would at least account for the fact that we’d be running from al-Qaeda attacks which would be an inconvenient fact for those who claim that Iraq is a distraction from the war on terrror, i.e. the war on al-Qaeda.

Correction I meant the Hitler-Stalin Pact, not the Pact of Steel which was between Mussolini and Hitler. See above.
