    This sounds good, but who are they kidding, the new Iraqi govenment officials can't even travel outside of the greeen zone. Policemen are issued a single Glock handgun, and soldiers are issued an AK47.

    On the other side the insergents have morters, RPG's, rockets and heavy machine guns. Dozens of newly trained Iraqi soldiers deserted recently when they found out that they would not be serving in their home towns.

    In reality The situation in Iraq hasn't changed in the past several years. This sounds like American election year hype and it is coming from an Iraqi.

    I'll believe that when I see it. :rolleyes:

    Frankly, I am deeply skeptical, almost to the point of cynicism.

    I do know that there are many Iraqis, both Sunni and Shia, and Kurd, who simply want the conflict to end, so that they can get on with normal lives. May it be so!
