Iraqi Awakening

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 28, 2007

WASHINGTON (AFIS, Nov. 26, 2007) – Determined to rise up against al Qaeda terrorists, concerned local citizens, working together with coalition forces, have started neighborhood watch programs in northern Iraq.

The citizens are calling the movement “Sahwa,” an Arabic term that means “awakening.”

The neighborhood watch programs were established Nov. 14, two weeks after local citizens approached Soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Battalion, 87th Infantry Regiment, with the idea. More than 1,000 citizens showed up, ready to be recruited to take up arms in defense against the terrorists in the region.

You know, I think the Iraqis get it better than half of America, and they are gonna be okay…despite the Democrats refusal to fund the war, and forcing the Army to cut back.
