Juan Cole: the anti-Sunni beat goes on.

Iraq today's Comments Section

August 13, 2007

Today 8/13/07 Juan Cole writes

"All four [soldiers] were killed. Unfortunately the LA Times calls the guerrillas 'al-Qaeda-allied.’ This terminology is from the Bush administration lexicon. I very much doubt that the LA Times knows whether the group that set the bomb is allied with al-Qaeda or not."

Cole has dedicated has career to predicating all sorts of monstrous acts to the Sunni/Baaths which any careful reader could say: 'I very much doubt that Cole knows whether that group committed the act.’ Indeed, he could not control his unmitigated hatred for Sunni/Baaths today, going on to say: "…for all we know, this cell belonged to the Baath Party. Note too that the Sunni Arab neighborhoods have the explosively formed projectiles…"

He then goes on to make the insulting comparison of "Adnan Dulaimi, a leader of the Sunni fundamentalist Iraqi Accord Front (44 seats in parliament)…" with the American comedian "Dennis Miller." He goes on: "Dulaimi is a little unbalanced, in my view…"

What makes this comparison of a parliament leader to an unbalance comedian most insulting is that Cole believes that "lots of Sunnis in al-Anbar and elsewhere think exactly as Dulami." Thus, Dulami and his Sunni constituency are 'unbalanced clowns’ not to be taken seriously. How’s that for an objective view point.

Cole continues, in the spirit of the great journalist/analyst I.F. Stone, writes: "It is always surprising what you can conclusively deduce just from reading the newspapers without the spin that the administration and the Pentagon manages to implant in the stories."

Indeed, readers of Cole would do well to practice what he preaches. Namely, read Cole very carefully. He, like the administration and Pentagon has a "spin"; specifically, an anti-Sunni pro-Shia spin. His years of study and living in the Middle East (not to mention, I believe his wife is Shia) has made him a partisan in the events; not just an objective viewer of the events. He is a must read. He provides much valuable factual data. But, he must be read carefully to differentiate his facts from his spin.
