Lieberman off the mark

In an oped piece in the Post Senator Joe Lieberman writes,

“Radical Islamist terrorist groups, both Sunni and Shiite, would reap victories simultaneously symbolic and tangible, as Iraq became a safe haven in which to train and strengthen their foot soldiers and Iran's terrorist agents.”

Joe- What are you talking about? Sunni’s and Shi’ites hate each other! Do you think that they will simply set up sovereign terror training camps and live happily ever after attacking the west/Israel? No, they will fight each other.

The real problem is that there will be killing fields in mixed ethnic neighborhoods and regional forces will intervene on behalf of their kin. Since both sides and their backers are relatively equal they will balance each other. It wont be pretty but is sure wont be laid back terrorist utopia.

Although I do not think a troop surge will fix the problem I hope it does because it is only a matter of time until it is a reality.
