USA to Britain - Ally or Enemy?

Let us take a walk backward to all the conflicts and Iranian arms coming through Basra, and let us take another look at what Britain was or was not doing. I have suspected and been made aware for a long time now that the British Army was not allowed to engage the enemy in its AO. What we were not made aware of until lately, is the fact that the government of Britain had decided to make a 'deal' with Mukki and his jihadists.

What was this deal, and why didn't they share this information with the USA or the Iraqi government? The deal consisted of this. Mukki could come and go as he pleased, he could conduct business as he pleased, and Britain would not get in his way as long as he did not kill any of them.

Even though Mukki did not keep his word, Britons still never fought back. That is how we ended up having to fight their battles for them. When the Iraqi troops and our troops (USA) went into Basra, it was a city that used to be peaceful but was now the most lawless place in Iraq. The people there were frightened, tortured, murdered regularly, raped, and they had no help from Britain. Incredible and unacceptable.

We cleaned up the mess Britain left behind, and they want to take credit for it? I DON'T THINK SO! With allies like this, who the heck needs enemies? Next time, Britain, stay home. We don't need your stinking kind of support.

You can read more about this from an Iraqi named Omar who was actually in Baghdad and lived through some of the worst times during this counterinsurgency in his country. That is, until General Petraeus come along and started kicking arse with our USA TROOPS AND IRAQI TROOPS. NOT with the Brits.

Thanks, but no thanks.

Hat tip: Omar at Iraq the Model: British Deal With al-Sadr Betrayed Iraqi People and the secret deal (from the Daily Mail).

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
