"Awakening Versus the State"

Anbar Awakening forces and the official security services of Iraq appear to be going at it in Diyala.

Now as long as neither of these contenders are shooting at US troops, which neither of them seem to be, that’s fine for us as long as you think an indefinite occupation of Iraq serves American interests. But that’s what this is about. We’re not preventing civil conflict in Iraq, or helping the Iraqis to build a coherent state.
