(Best Syndication News) US forces are finding more weapons caches in Iraq, thanks to cash rewards given away by US forces. Not only has the US lost "tons" of cash that was fork-lifted into the country, there have been literally tons of weapons lost or misplaced in Iraq. Many of the weapons provided to the Iraqi government were sold or given away by employees of the Iraqi government to the Shiite militias.

Those Shiite groups were not as friendly to the Iranian government as the Shiite government we helped establish. Although the US was and is the largest weapons supplier in Iraq, some other armaments are seeping in from Russia, China and Iran. Saudis are supplying the Sunni insurgents.

Ron Paul

(Best Syndication News) It is official, the war has garnered bi-partisan support as Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives approve $162 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although 151 Democrats voted against the measure, only 80 Democrats voted in favor. Nancy Pelosi and former Presidential candidate Kucinich were among those who voted against it.

There were only four Republicans voting against HR2642. Texas Republican Ron Paul and Jeff Flake of Arizona both opposed the measure on conservative grounds. Both Paul and Flake are popular among fiscal conservatives. Other Republicans joined with Democrats to add billions to the bill that was passed last May by the Senate.

US Forces Hand Out Aid In Iraq

(Best Syndication News) The US Ambassador to Iraq, Ryan Crocker, says that the Sunni group the US calls Al-Qaeda in Iraq is close to defeat, but the Shiites are still a problem. At a press conference 50 miles south of Baghdad in Karbala, Crocker gave much of the credit to the new Iraqi Shiite government led by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and not US forces.

Although the ambassador claims the war with Al Qaeda is near the end, a report from the Associated Press states Al-Qaeda fighters or other Sunni insurgents struck back in Mosul on Saturday. It is very difficult to win a war when the opponent’s strategy is to lay-down roadside bombs.

CIA Director Hayden

(Best Syndication) The United States and European nations view the fight against terrorism differently, according to Central Intelligence Agency Director Michael V. Hayden. In a speech at the Landon Lecture Series in Kansas, Hayden said Europeans see the threat of terrorism as a law enforcement issue, while the US views it differently.

“In much of Europe, terrorism is seen differently: primarily as an internal, law enforcement problem, and solutions are focused more narrowly on securing the homeland,” Hayden said. This is not to say that Europeans do not work with each other to thwart the terrorist threat, they do according to Hayden.
