Mission Accomplished Now?

We know it was never a picnic to be stationed in Iraq, but what do we make of this this article from Britain's Guardian. The article begins: "Leaders of Iraq's sharply divided Shiites, Kurds and Sunnis called Monday for a timetable for the withdrawal of U.S.-led forces in the country and said Iraq's opposition had a ``legitimate right'' of resistance.

The final communique, hammered out at the end of three days of negotiations at a preparatory reconciliation conference under the auspices of the Arab League, condemned terrorism, but was a clear acknowledgment of the Sunni position that insurgents should not be labeled as terrorists if their operations do not target innocent civilians or institutions designed to provide for the welfare of Iraqi citizens."

In other words, a conference of Iraqi leaders generates an agreement that attacks against U.S. troops by insurgents represents their "legitimate right of resistance." How'd you like to have a son or daughter over there and to then read that the country they "liberated" now proclaims that attacks against them are "legitimate?"

Now that's something to feel shock and awe over!
