The Iraqis are turning on Al Qaeda
It took them long enough, but it is happening thanks to Al Zarqawi's stupidity. Al Sadr is blaming them instead of the Sunnis for the Mosque's bombing, the tribal chiefs of Anbar and Kirkuk have announced that they are forming the Anbar Revenge Brigade with the purpose of hunting Al Qaeda foriegn fighters down, and they are already killing them. This marks a twist for Al Zarqawi, who was attacking the US forces and the Shiites simultaniously in order to keep the dvisions between sunnis and shiite alive, and ensure that the sunnis- who he needs to keep him hidden and safe- don't turn on him because he was an effective tool of terror against the Shia. But now, especially after almost getting dragged to the fringes of civil war, the sunni tribal leaders are realizing that this guy is a huge liability. Good. I hope they are the ones that do kill him. I would be very proud of Iraqi sunnis if they were the ones who take out Al Zarqawi.
