    I ask a question based on years of observation. And you so far have not answered the question.

    As you have brought up continuation, do you think it is a good idea to pay off Sunni tribes again to stop doing something which they very possibly are doing just so that they will be paid off again?

    To paraphrase you - it has actually worked for them more than once in the past.

    The world is bad enough as it is, you have no right to make it any worse.
    Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.

      nothing but a bunch of mercenaries. I think that is the wrong assumption.

        I'm not saying that paying them off is the End Game.
      I'm merely pointing out that buying the Sunnis can achieve a very important goal.
