you say that you're my friend, but you're one of them:
The CLC (Sorry, "Sons of Iraq") power-grab story goes mainstream. Reports Alissa J. Rubin of the Times:
Conflicts between provincial governments and local Sunni Arab forces allied with the United States intensified this weekend in two provinces. The conflicts raise the prospect that the creation of the forces, known as Awakening Councils or Concerned Local Citizens, formed to fight extremists and bring calm to the country, might instead add to the unrest in Diyala and Anbar provinces.Wow, who could possibly have seen this coming? A militia force of ex-insurgents who hate the Shiite government trying a power grab after the U.S. gives it cash and weapons, and asks only "trust" in return? No, not the valiant forces of Sheikh Abdul Sattar! Never! They're bravely standing up against al-Qaeda, and in return they ask only that Iraq become a vibrant pro-American democracy! They'll give up their guns on general principle, just as soon as al-Qaeda is driven from Iraq and the 25-foot statue of George W. Bush goes up in Firdous Square! This could never come back to haunt us!
