Thanks for the ping.
Interesting article. That is exactly what the Iraqi Ba'athists were trying to do.
Did you see this?
From Iraqi Intelligence: A Plan for Action in the Event of a Regime Downfall (doc. found in Iraq) http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/949973/posts
Yeah, I saw that thread.
From what I gather, though, the "guerrillas" we're fighting right now are basically whatever is left of the Fedayeen combined with elements of the Special Security Organization and the Special Republican Guard that chose to keep fighting after Baghdad fell. They were probably aware of the plan and are now trying to implement it, abeit with a very low rate of success for a guerrilla war. Compared to Chechnya or Kashmir, Iraq is hardly a "quagmire."
