Okay, so I wrote this title like I was Michael Moore. It is interesting, because I think that just about everyone has figured out that killing Iraqis in a culture which invented and eye for an eye justice is not going to last too long.
One aspect that I haven't seen a lot of press on, and Omar at Iraq the Model hasn't given me an answer to, is what happened to Zarqawi when his family disowned him? Seems to me that the tribal relationship is the most important, offering protection and structure that outsiders are not allowed to participate in.
If Z's family boots him, who gives him protection now?
