Sometimes when you lie down with dogs, you not only get fleas but your ass bitten off as well.

As U.S. Marines clean up the ratlines connecting the insurgents to men and arms in Syria and border areas, it's interesting to note that the FREs (former regime elements) sowed an alliance of convenience with Al Qaeda terrorists, and have now reaped a bitter harvest: the suicide bombings (which kill mostly civilians) are causing even Sunnis to turn against them (as Chrenkoff notes today) where before they might have been more sympathetic to the FRE's cause. Now Sunnis are lining up by the thousands to join the free democratic forces of New Iraq, and one suspects they will vote far more enthusiastically in the coming elections as well.
