It appears that the long-awaited assault on Fallujah will begin at any time. One vital question is how the Iraqi soldiers participating in the attack will behave. It is an article of faith among many on the left that Iraqi troops will never be effective, so that America’s soldiers will be responsible for security in Iraq indefinitely. Time will tell; but reader Haider Ajina says the Iraqis are anxious to rid their country of terrorists. He is scornful of Kofi Annan’s suggestion that cleansing Fallujah of terrorists will somehow make January’s elecetions more problematic:
Annan obviously is out of touch with Iraq, its government & its people (may be even reality). The people of Iraq (Sunnis included) have wanted the liberation of the Sunni area for some time.
