Savage Resistance: A Bloody Weekend Points to a Shi'ite Surge Against Uncle Sam

The National Resistance continues to fight, and blood continues to flow in Iraq due completely to Uncle Sam's occupation of Iraq. Uncle Sam's privatized propaganda machine reported on the events this weekend as one of the bloodiest for his GI Joes.

The reason is simple: Uncle Sam's recent policy shift in Iraq made the explicit call to target Sadrists. The strategy took concrete form earlier this week with the kidnapping of Sadrist politician Abdul-Hadi al-Darraji in Baghdad.

This weekend, the movement responded.

National Resistance Fighters downed a helicopter in Diyala province to the East of Baghdad, killing fifteen GI Joes including a high-ranking officer.

Until his announcement, to retain plausible deniability, Uncle Sam preferred to fight the Sadrist forces - excepting two brief uprisings in Najaf and some scattered fighting in Sadr City - clandistenly. Attacks on the Sadrists were indirect. Meant to divorce the Sadrists from the National Resistance, they took the form of alCIAda-staged Black Ops on Shi'ite holy sites. And, to a large extent these moves were effective, temporarily shattering all hopes for national unity among Iraqis (against Uncle Sam), and using the sectarian attacks that resulted to justify his presence.

The best example of this strategy was Uncle Sam's February 2006 attack on the Askariyah Shrine in Samarra, which Savage Justice covered extensively.

No doubt in anticipation of another Black-Ops strike hatched by Uncle Sam's WarOn Terrorists in Karbala' over ‘Ashura,’ which begins 29 January, Sadrist Resistance Fighters launched a coordinated attack on a puppet government building with grenades, small arms, and more than a dozen rockets on Saturday, killing five more GI Joes.

Elsewhwere in Southern Iraq, the National Resistance staged an ambush in Basra, killing a British soldier.

As it has done with much greater accuracy than Uncle Sam's Privatized Propaganda Machine, the Iraq Resistance Reports detail these and other attacks, which indicate an in-progress unification between Sunni and Shi'ites and a renewed commitment by the National Resistance to expel Uncle Sam's GI Joes.
