The real insurgency, and the fake one

The latest story (or here) is that the Iraqi insurgents are using American vehicles stolen in the United States in committing their attacks. This has to remind you of the discovery that the insurgents were using Italian-made hand guns manufactured without serial numbers, an order almost certainly placed by some intelligence agency (it should also remind you of the inconsistencies in the assassination of Nick Berg). The 'experts' claim that the American vehicles are used because they more easily fit in, but that is obvious nonsense, as they stand out like a sore thumb. The insurgency is ninety-five percent local - the other five percent of the insurgents are from neighboring Muslim countries radicalized by the obscenity of the American violence against innocent Iraqis, and will no doubt go on to cause the United States years of trouble in the future - and use exactly the assets you would think they would use. Things they have at hand. Things like local delivery trucks and armaments hidden in Saddam's arms caches. They are not some international organization with contacts with American organized crime that would have access to vehicles stolen in the United States. Since the British agents provocateurs were caught red-handed in Basra, it has become more and more difficult to reject the theory that much of the insurgency - in particular those acts intended to create tensions between Sunnis and Shi'ites and create a civil war that will break up the country - is a concerted effort by intelligence agents from the United States, Britain, and Israel. There are two parallel 'insurgencies':

  1. the real one, which consists of attacks against foreign occupying soldiers by people, mostly from Iraq, opposed to the occupation; and

  2. the fake one, which consists of attacks by American, British and Israeli agents provocateurs against groups of civilians, and against foreign aid workers and journalists, which is intended to break up the county in a civil war and obfuscate what is really going on.

Mixing these up is intended to hide the reality of the real opposition of the people of Iraq to the occupation.
