jmc1969 was a tool who was more than willing to run down the war just because the Sunnis he favored weren’t being treated the way he wanted them to.

I disagreed with jmc1969 on this approach but I think he was not running down the war.

Also, please understand that we are on the brink of a total victory in Iraq because very recently the Sunnis have started their rebellion against Al Qaeda terrorists which means that Al Qaeda lost its main line of defense which "was" the protection and support by the Sunnis, and this means that Al Qaeda has no protection now and our troops are quickly annihilating them.

"jmc1969 was a tool who was more than willing to run down the war just because the Sunnis he favored weren’t being treated the way he wanted them to."
How strange my hundreds of intercourses with jcmc1969 never left me with that impression, and if anything quite the contrary. He more often then not, brought out kinks in how things where being ran, but never condemed in full anyone in particular. He had some strong things to say about say Bremmer, but in retrospect, Bremmer screwed up a lot of things early on, that say Jay Garner would not have considered doing, and he did not allow his level of criticism to go much beyond the Bremmer lead State Department lackys that should not have been given so much power to run things with no checks in place.
The allowance to let the UN and Europeans in essence pursuade the Iraqi to accept a voting systems whereby one votes for a list, not an individual should be a case in point.
In addition he along with some others, including myself had over a period of time admonished our readership to consider reading Blog sites such as Iraq the Model (ITM) in order to garner some early on inside perspectives from the view of a few Iraqi professional types.
Is it a sin to post articles one may feel contain some real BS, but post them so that others can see how a given media perceives or in some cases, attempts to hoodwink the masses.
