Oh yeah, that's a great idea!!! More guns!!!
Iraqis told to arm for defense after 220 killed
BAGHDAD (AP) — Prominent Shiite and Sunni politicians called on Iraqi civilians to take up arms to defend themselves after a weekend of violence that claimed more than 220 lives, including 60 who died Sunday in a surge of bombings and shootings around Baghdad.
The calls reflect growing frustration with the inability of Iraqi security forces to prevent extremist attacks.
The weekend deaths included two American soldiers — one killed Sunday in a bombing on the western outskirts and Baghdad and another who died in combat Saturday in Salahuddin province north of the capital, the U.S. command said. Three soldiers were wounded in the Sunday blast.
Is it me, or wouldn't it be a better idea for the politicians to make the Iraqi security forces do their job correctly than urging civilians to take up arms?
