Their stupidity is astounding

I need fresh Arabs

U.S. seeking Arab peacekeepers in Iraq

CAIRO, Jan. 13 (UPI) -- The U.S. is reportedly seeking to convince Arab countries to send troops to Iraq to replace U.S. forces after the formation of a new Iraqi government.

Cairo-based Arab diplomatic sources said U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney who will start a Middle East tour on Sunday including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Oman, will discuss the matter with Arab leaders.

The sources told United Press International Friday Cheney will raise with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and other Arab leaders the possibility of dispatching Arab and Islamic troops to Iraq to pave the way for the reduction of American forces.

Washington hopes Arab forces would participate in keeping peace in the regions from which it will pull out its troops, and as such send a positive message to Iraq's neighbors that it does not intend to keep its forces in the Arab country, the sources said.

Yeah, that will work.

So when the Muslim Brotherhood seize power, what will the Dark Prince say then? Any Arab government sending troops to Iraq is inviting their own civil war.

This might work as part of a UN stabilization force after the US completely withdraws, but expecting Arab troops to assist the occupation, well that dog won't hunt.

And I'm sure the Shia want foriegn Sunnis patrolling their country.

The fact is we will leave, we will leave in disgrace and that's that.
