“At some point the Iraqis will get tired of getting killed and we'll have enough of the Iraqi security forces that they can take over responsibility for governing that country"
The good old scorched earth policy is alive and well in our neo-con utopia. "We have to destroy the village to save it. Collective policy unethical? Well, screw ethics."

Iraq: Sanatized Slaughter

Yeah, the Iraqis are damn sick and tired of being killed, which is why more and more of them are showing the US-led occupiers the door.
