Q&A Friday #3: The Continuation Of The Iraqi Insurgency

Question: “What is the significance, in your mind, of the Iraqi resistance group’s new threat to kill Abu Musab al-Zarqawi? Will there be more opposition to the foreign fighters in Iraq now that the occupation is officially over, or is the American presence enough to “provoke” the Iraqis that are supporting the insurgency to continue to do so as fervently as they have over the past few months?” — drunkenmaster

Answer: I don’t think Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has much to worry about from a group of masked Iraqis unless they have super powers =D. To kill al-Zarqawi, they have to find him, and we can’t do it and the interim government can’t do it with all of our manpower and intelligence, I doubt that they can do it either.

On the other hand, the Iraqi people have accepted the interim government. As Larry Kudlow points out in his

So we probably have already been hit with the insurgents best shot back in April when we were fighting Al-Sadr and in Fallujah. Although we’re not out of the woods yet, things should continue to slowly and surely improve as Iraq continues down the road towards Democracy. Once they get there, make sure to mock all of the liberals who preferred to leave Saddam in place and have contributed absolutely nothing to freedom in Iraq or for that matter, the war on terror in general.
