Al Qaeda attempts to start civil war.

FOXNews.com - Top Stories - Iraq Truck Bomb Kills at Least 50: "On Monday, U.S. officials said a letter seized last month from an Al Qaeda courier asked the terrorist leadership to help foment civil war between Sunnis and Shiites to undermine the coalition and the future Iraqi leadership. "

This is what I think the people at home don't understand about Iraq. I was watching the Daily Show last night and John Stewart was mocking President Bush because of the question "Do you think the United States is Welcome in Iraq". The president replied with a short laugh "yes, I think we are welcomed in Iraq". The answer really isn't so simple but who cares. The fact is that there are so many different things happening in Iraq right now. So, yes there are people in Iraq that welcome the U.S. There are also forces operating against the U.S and the local police and even the civilian population. U.S civilians dont' get it.. They don't understand what it's like to re-build a country. They don't understand how enemy forces can create chaos and confusion. They don't understand that there are anti-U.S operatives in "civilian" crowds. They don't understand that "civilian protests" aren't always that.. they are ambushes waiting to happen.
