Answering questions like “the enemy of my enemy of my enemy is my what” and “what to do about the Iranian terrorist
Answering questions like “the enemy of my enemy of my enemy is my what” and “what to do about the Iranian terrorist group that is helping Saddam, and helping Us.”, Michael Crowley said:
“One of the many hard questions about the war in Iraq is what the United States will do about something called the National Liberation Army. The NLA is a well-trained brigade of men outfitted with heavy artillery, rockets, and tanks. Its troops are headquartered less than 30 miles west of Baghdad, though some recent news accounts say they have moved toward Kurdish areas in northern Iraq. Although the NLA soldiers are Iranians, they are avowed opponents of Iran's clerical rulers and have made common cause with Saddam Hussein. Indeed the NLA has served as part of Saddam's internal security operation and even helped him put down Kurdish and Shiite rebels.
They are also purportedly enemies of the United States. The State Department considers the NLA part of an international Iranian terrorist group that has killed Americans and thousands of civilians.”
In this analysis, he points out to the unparalleled responses of this group toward the US attack according to American officials and describes the future of the group as dark, gloomy and ambiguous.
