We're surging our troops into unsafe positions in the middle of sectarian violence. We'd expect some help, but Iraqi forces still aren't even coming through with the number of security forces needed. We are training and arming Sunni insurgents. Former Sunni insurgents might be fighting us now, or might-at a convenient time for them, become blow-backs. The two most famous blow-backs are of course Hussein and bin laden. The Shiites don't like us arming the Sunnis. Why would they? The Iraqis aren't closer to making any of the political reconciliations steps required either. In fact, due to the upside-down, Bizarro world that W has created, the only person who might gain from the bombing of the Samarra shrine is one of our worst enemies.
