Jafaari: Two Years Enough For Security
In counterpoint to the gloom and doom forecast by US media, Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jafaari told reporters that two years would be "more than enough" time to establish security in Iraq. From the Associated Press:
LONDON - Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari said Monday that two years would be "more than enough" to establish security in his country.Jafaari obviously doesn't follow Western mainstream media outlets, otherwise he'd know that every inch of his country is under attack from a "growing and increasingly sophisticated" insurgency, and that it will take probably 800 to a thousand years and millions of casualties before Iraq is secure.
Following talks with British Prime Minister Tony Blair, al-Jaafari said factors such as building up Iraq's own security forces, controlling its porous borders and pushing ahead with the political process would all play a part.
"I think two years will be enough, and more than enough, to establish security in our country," al-Jaafari told a news conference.
