These resistance fighters are also the ones who impose Islamist rule that means it is ok for a father to murder his 17yo daughter because she was seen talking to a British soldier. See http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/2/story.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=10509641&pnum=2

You might think a bit more before choosing sides. If Western forces leave and Iraq becomes an Islamist totalitarian state, and you cheer it, then your feminist credentials are worth nothing. You will have just cheered Iraqi women back to the dark ages.

"Are you aware of the socialist groups in the armed resistance? Since when did they become bin Ladenites? "

The post wasn't about those, the small numbers that they are, mostly Baathist - you know, the ones that were part of the Hussein regime, that bastion of human rights.

Keep supporting them and go tell the families murdered by insurgents or the shopkeepers unable to sell music, non-Islamic literature because they get threatened with death by the insurgency.

Put a label "socialist" on a bunch of gun totting insurgents and suddenly they are morally superior - I guess like during the Spanish Civil War, or the entire Soviet bloc, or in Nicaragua.

The insurgency in Iraq has by any measure murdered thousands of Iraqis.

They have actually stopped targeting Americans - did so some months ago. Something to do with shooting back.

Nice to see you declare open support for mass murders. That's the good thing about this blog, you don't try to hide your hatred for freedom, human rights and democracy.

'The mainstream media is too stupid to communicate the complexities of Iraq'

So are you. Are you aware of the socialist groups in the armed resistance? Since when did they become bin Ladenites? How about the leaders of three large groups who gave an interview with the media last week in which they laid out their commitment to democratic elections once the US leaves and condemned AQ. There is a mountain of data at lenin's Tomb which outraged liberals simply never goes near. These are the same people who refused to support the resistance to the US in Nam and to France in Algeria because it was too ideologically impure for them. They claim to sit above the contesting parties, but the net result of their stance is backhanded support for imperialist occupation.

The fact that the so called Iraqi resistance (which is an umbrella term for dozens of groups, most of which are against each other too) does have expelling US forces as the first goal, the second goal for the vast majority is establishing an Islamist caliphate that would suppress all dissent and adopt the policies of the Taliban. You might contemplate how women were treated there and how they are still treated in Iran (especially outside Tehran) before siding with dark ages Islamists.

You might consider that your visceral anti-Americanism is utterly blind to how complex is - the Western forces are only a sideshow compared to the wholesale slaughter of Shi'a as Sunni Islamists.

The mainstream media is too stupid to communicate the complexities of Iraq and I'm afraid the left is too blinded by anti-Americanism to consider how disastrous it would be if the Western forces abandoned Iraq now.

PM,

I'm not making any judgment on the tactics, courage or lack of, or the many various aims of the fighters at the moment, but you are completely misrepresenting the facts of direct engagement by forces resisting the occupation:

The US military death toll makes for horrifying reading, like any such sparse accounts do, as you try and paint the gaps in your mind of who these people where, where they come from...there is no similar list or even count for the Iraqi resistance that I can find. - BH binaryheart.wordpress.com

I must have missed these resistance fighters:

"...their courageous insistence on combatting an enemy with immense death-dealing power, confronting them in the streets..."

The only ones I've noticed seem to concentrate on the mass murder of civilian Iraqis, for the simple reason that killing Americans is difficult and dangerous. Apart from the occasional roadside bomb that is, but I wouldn't file that under "confronting them in the streets."
