... There's that nasty pre-war term again "Advisors"

... I cannot believe a rag-tag group of unorganized "insurgents" can be so effective at killing our troops.

... WTF is going on here? Where are these people coming from? Who's supplying their material and who is at the core of their intelligence and command? This is more than good luck on their part, and I say we need to escalate this war to the source now or cut and run at this point (or "withdraw" if it's easier for you to think about).

... Your opinions solicited

Iran has spotted US planes in their airspace. Hmm....

Which group of insurgents?

If we could find a state behind it, I'm sure the bombs would fall.

I guess Iran.

Syria, Egypt, former Iraqi officers, Al-Qaeda.

Kurds? (although they aren't attacking US forces currently)

Iran, Al-Qaeda, US SF.

Of course there is more than one group under each category.

just my opinion:

the time we wasted prior to our operations in Iraq - the 9 months or so we played patsies with the UN - the baathists and al quaeda operatives stashed arms and increased existing, prepositioned caches for such operations.

stuff was moved out of Iraq, cells were dispersed and whoever survived the initial contact with us cooled it for a short while and then came out blazing.  operatives from Iran, Syria, Chechnya, etc. all rallied to the call for jihad.

well trained cells don't need large command structures to operate and can be very successful in just this type of scenario.  hit and run - there are al-zarqawi's out there and probably a leader in the area but the suicide bombers can be a prepositioned one man show.

its pretty much a given some iranian communication net exists, and syrian as well, to keep fresh fighters coming in and direct in a very general way.  again, it does not take thousands of men enmasse to do a lot of damage.  just a few well placed fanatics.
