From the Guardian:
The Iraqi resistance has peaked and is 'turning in on itself', according to recent intelligence reports from Baghdad received by Middle Eastern intelligence agencies.
The reports are the most optimistic for several months and reflect analysts' sense that recent elections in Iraq marked a 'quantum shift'. They will boost the government in the run-up to the expected general election in May.
Though the reports predict that violence against coalition troops and local forces is likely to continue for the foreseeable future, at least two Middle Eastern intelligence agencies believe that recent 'backchannel' initiatives aimed at persuading Sunni Muslim tribes in western Iraq to cease their resistance are meeting with some success.
This is the question that every Iraqi terrorist will ask himself: do I continue to associate and work with a bunch of vicious sex-deprived losers or do I join the process of DEMOCRACY, WHISKEY, and SEXY? I think with a few synapses firing, most will make the right choice.
