Another day of terror in Iraq

A US helicopter went down in an attack claimed by yet another new group of insurgents in Iraq.

Beside Ethnic killings, random killings are becoming more frequent in Baghdad and this is a sure sign of a civil war in the country. Usually random killings are perpetrated by groups whose only interest is to maintain ethnic tensions because wherever and whenever they happen they are always attributed by their victims to the 'other' sect or faction. Their other function is also to 'separate' rival sects and factions. This is why they are mostly concentrated in cities where there is geographic religious mixity.

The helicopter is a strong and flexible weapon, but it is also very vulnerable. We saw that in Vietnam too. This is ultimately what will be weakening the American morale. Whole helicopter crews getting lost and material damage of considerable size.
