Daughters of Iraq and Other Good News

The Daughters of Iraq, a U.S. financed paramilitary force like the Sons of Iraq, but with girls, is being deployed against the counterinsurgency. The 21 women recently graduated from a weapons certification program will conduct searches of women and girls at checkpoints and similar duties. They will join the estimated 1000 other Iraqi women on the Police Force, but they will be armed with AK-47s with authorization to use them.

Al-Qaida and other lunatic Muslim terror groups have been using female suicide bombers of late because they've just about run out of male jihadis willing to blow themselves to smithereens, or the men left are all gay and have no use for the 72 virgins in paradise.

Iraq's Presidency Council has ratified a long awaited law opening the way to the first provincial elections held in four years. About two weeks ago, parliamentarians agreed to a draft proposal to submit to the Council that includes Iraqi President Jalal Talabani and two deputies. The main point of contention was the fate of the city of Kirkuk and the distribution of oil wealth which has yet to be resolved, but officials have promised to take up the issue again next year.

The Council has yet to officially sign the bill. Parliament will be asked to reinstate the provisions guaranteeing the representation and rights of Christians and other minorities. The law is also considered a major step to return underrepresented groups, especially the Anbar Sunnis, to the national political fold.

Joe Biden demanded at the VP debate last Thursday night to know what a John McCain/Sarah Palin administration would do differently than the Bush Administration has done in Iraq. Biden said McCain had been "dead wrong" on Iraq and that his policies on the Middle East, Afghanistan and Pakistan were no different from those of President George W. Bush. Gov. Sarah Palin then said the Obama/Biden plan for Iraq was to raise "a white flag of surrender".

I can't imagine why, with this much positive action taking place by the Iraqi government and people, would anyone want a different plan. Except, maybe to destroy the U.S. and relegate this country to the scrapheap of history. Barack Obama, who is not a Muslim, couldn't possibly want that.
