Don't leave me behind. What about us the puppets of occupation? Al-Arabiya TV began its morning broadcast by airing lenghty comments--pleading, really--by Ahmad Abu Risha (successor to `Abdus-Sattar Abu Risha. He said that Obama should not mention any reference to withdrawal or timetables. Abu Risha almost said that his men would continue to fight for the American occupation provided they continue to receive $300 per month, although his men threatened to go back to supporting Al-Qa`idah a few months ago when their stipends were late in arriving. This is a war of principles and lofty ideals. Make no mistake about it.
