Arms that the US has supplied to the Iraqi army have clearly ended up with the Shia militia forces. Arms that the US is supplying to Sunni forces now claiming to oppose Al Quida in Iraq are also ending up in the hands of Sunni militias.

So we have a situation where the United States is arming both sides of the civil war. At this point, it should be clear that there is no thought about Iraq becoming a self-governing and sovereign country. That would be contrary to the original goals of the neocons in invading Iraq in the first place. Most reasonable people would now conclude that peace can never come in Iraq until the United States ends its occupation.

We dismantled the government. We destroyed the country. The healing cannot start until we leave. That much is clear.
