NSN Daily Update – Violence Erupts in Kirkuk, 7/29/08
Posted by The National Security Network

The full NSN Daily Update can be found on our website

Here are some Quick Hits:

A village in Pakistan’s border region was hit by a US missile strike, killing six, reportedly including a senior Al Qaeda leader. This came hours before President Bush and Prime Minister Gilani met at the White House to highlight their continued alliance in the war on terror. Bush “made a point of saying he respected Pakistan's sovereignty.”

Meanwhile, 30 policemen were taken hostage and three intelligence officers killed
in the FATA region of Pakistan. This is a gross violation of the truce signed between the government and the local militants.

A major joint offensive between U.S. and Iraqi forces in Iraq’s Diyala province began today
to root out some of the last remaining insurgent strongholds.

The US needs to put more emphasis on police and intelligence efforts in the fight against terrorists, rather than rely on the military, according to a new report by the Rand research center. “Terrorists should be perceived and described as criminals, not holy warriors.”

The Department of Homeland Security created another category of security alert a ‘POHA’
(Period of High Alert) for its employees in advance of “a series of upcoming high-profile events,” including the Olympics and the election.

The RAND study is interesting due to the fact in order to treat the fighting of terrorism as a criminal problem, this country will have to act in a multilateral framework and with nations like Iran and Russia. This directly against the neo-conservative ideology of unilateralism and hostility towards the ouside world. Also with the suicide bombings in Baghadad yesterday it shows that the surge has not really been that successful due to a lack of political reconciliation between the Sunnis and the Shiites. I personally believe that the presence of American troops in Iraq will only make the situation worse in that either the Sunnis or the Shiites will believe that the Americans are on their side and thereby can refuse any political settlement. Furthermore militants of both these sects still view the Americans as being against them and the insurgency could once again spread across Iraq.
