Binocular Snapshot for 12/18/2011

LastDayWatchers more and more the day of reckoning which will revel the lie & shows just how unsuccessful the so-called "success of the surge" really was

The dust had barely settled from the last column of departing U.S. armoured vehicles when Iraq's rival Sunni and Shi'ite factions resumed the kind of political infighting that threatens a lurch back into turmoil

"Within hours of the last U.S. troops rolling out of Iraq on Sunday, Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki had asked parliament to sack his Sunni deputy, and security sources said an arrest warrant was issued for the Sunni vice president."

"The Americans have left behind them a country that is falling apart and an Iraqi army and security forces that have a long way ahead to be able to defend the nation and the people."

The convoys that left Sunday were the last of a massive operation pulling out American forces that has lasted for months to meet the end-of-the-year deadline agreed with the Iraqis during the administration of President George W. Bush."

"We thought the Americans would bring us a better life, but they brought us nothing but suffering,"


"Partnership has not been achieved,"

As U.S. departs Iraq, it leaves behind allies who won't talk
