Clouds on the horizon for Falluja?

 

Anbar Province, the US's good news story in Iraq, faces challenges as anger grows in its city of Falluja over a continuing lack of jobs, basic services, and political progress despite the fact that it is the most stable area in the country.

The US military, which said it could transfer Anbar to Iraqi forces as soon as this month, now gives no timeframe. Ironically, Anbar's Tribal Awakening
Councils, or Sahwa, a big reason for Anbar's peace, now threaten to become the problem.

Sahwa councils contain many former insurgents who now fight against the chaos. They want to be employed in the Iraqi police & military, but the Shiite
government in Iraq is wary of employing a military force with many former Sunni rebels.

  Not to attack your phrasing, but  
 
Paying armed factions protection money was never good news.

  nope  
 
and the fact is that most of them haven't been paid for their work, so now they're turning against american troops again for lack of payment.

  Yeah, I agree  
 
The article says, though, that the Sahwa troops are getting $300 a month to do their
patrols right now, and that they want to go into the army because those guys get paid
more to do the same things. Personally, I'd be willing to throw some extra bucks at
that. After all, having locals on the ground would still be cheaper and more effective
than putting all that US gear in there and just fomenting more resentment.

pays a thief..hahahah.

I bet, the moment US soldiers leave the area completely, there will be peace in the region.

Don't forget, at the beginning of this war, they had a slogan " I take my brothers we go fight with our cousins, I take my brothers and my cousins we go fight the outsider"
USA and its chaotic, mayhem creators allies, should create a council from within to look after the interests of Iraqis. Instead of appointing some loony whom is going to be their puppet.

USA has never learned from all the chaos they have created through out history, since agenda is malice from day one.

They went to Somali as Peaceful mission, to help Somalis from poverty. G-Bush senior; gets the OK from UN goes to Somali and next thing you know, peaceful mission became operation search for Warlords the moment they exchanged offices with Bubba?? WTF!

Mohamad Aidid became the target and even with it's might, USA lost big times, came out of there with a big black eye, that made it vulnerable to attacks from Al-Qaida.
Do they ever learn? As Randy Couture says, " It is the heart that fights, not the muscles" No matter how mighty USA military is, once soldiers are on the ground, start counting fallen soldiers, only this time the number has reached 4000 and still counting, so that after this term is over, the Bushites will be patted on the back, by the Saudis and the other Oil conglomerates.

has it spot on I think. Save for one point...

"USA has never learned from all the chaos they have created through out history, since agenda is malice from day one."

I think the agenda has always been greed and indifference. The US don't hurt people for pleasure, only because they get in the way of $$. From the smallest American drug dealer, to the president himself. Eyes trained firmly on $more$, smashing, killing, destroying all which stands between man and money. 1 nation under the dollar, now and always.

Look at USA today!

20 years ago, wearing anything made in the US in the 3rd world nations was IT.

Today and I have seen this with my own 2 eyes, people dont want to be associated with USA because of it's foreign policy, which has told the rest of the World to F off if you dont side with us and our tyranny.

Most of this is blatant in your face type because of, of course israel, whom people watch them in dismay as they plunder other human beings.

McCain has already shown same rhetoric, by heading to the masters for their blessing, where do you think the rest of the World is with this admin and if Mccain is to be the next administrator. The same place..

I totally agree, I'm British and would never wish to associate myself with the US either. Our politicians may be friends but public opinion here is often quite anti-US.

Support for Israel comes from the large Jewish influence in the US doesn't it? Also, Israel needs to be kept on side, they can be relied upon as a base to launch strikes from if needs be. A terrible reason, but sound.
