re Diana West “A Soldier Speaks Out on Iraq, from Iraq”

Diana West posts an email from a soldier in Iraq titled  “A Soldier Speaks Out on Iraq, from Iraq”.

It is a complete reversal of what George Casey and the brass say.  Its a reversal of George Bush religion of peace.

The soldier writes

The Full Analysis:

Parts 1 and 2 of “The ‘Surge’ and ‘Success’” correctly identify that we have gained nothing positive for our efforts in Iraq while the Iraqis have betrayed us. I do not trust any Iraqi or Middle Easterner. I do not care if anyone calls me a “racist” or “bigot” anymore. Those words have lost their meaning. Do I think that every single Iraqi or Middle Easterner is bad? No. But I think it is difficult to tell. An Iraqi or Middle Easterner will smile to your face or be your best friend one moment, and cut your head off in the next. It is odd that so many people cannot comprehend this. It is even weirder that those who pride themselves on being “culturally aware” cannot grasp that Middle Eastern culture and thought, and Islamic behavior and thought are completely different than ours (than ours on the Right, at least). Perhaps this ignorance partially explains why the U.S. had no reaction when Maliki declared victory over the U.S. when we moved out of the major Iraqi cities. But even if it is a partial explanation it still is no excuse.

This paragraph is not the full email and comes after an executive summary.  But this is the nutshell of the email and the problem.  This is why we should have no Muslim immigration and send them back.  Its why Vahid Majidi should not be head of FBI WMD.

The email is brilliant end to end.  It reflects great knowledge and experience as well as study.  It shows a long mastery and familiarity with these subjects.  Its worth reading in its entirety several times.

Also important and worth reading is Diana West’s 3 part series on Iraq.

The answer is no, for the reason that Muslims in general and Iraqis in particular are against us.  Iraq is an enemy nation, now more than under Saddam. That is one of the things the soldier tells us.
