A Real Surge On The Way?

Mark Krikorian writes:
Since it seems fairly certain to me now that we're going to end up evacuating Baghdad's green zone from the embassy roof in helicopters, what I'm worried about is the much more significant "surge" we're going to have to deal with — Iraqi refugees, virtually all of them our Sunni enemies, being resettled by the hundreds of thousands in the United States. Thomas Friedman in today's NY Times writes: "Of course, just leaving would be bad for us and terrible for those Iraqis who have worked with us. We need to give them all U.S. passports." And that's just what's going to happen, just as France took in nearly 100,000 Harkis after the Algerian war, though the Iraqi flow here is likely to be an order of magnitude greater. The number coming here so far has been small, but it's going to grow rapidly. Which is why in the future we need to factor in considerations of the immigration fallout before we launch foreign policy initiatives.
There's at least one reason why "the number coming here so far has been small" (though that seems fine with Krikorian, since they're "enemies"). From the website of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad:
Currently, the U.S. Embassy Baghdad Consular Section is not authorized to accept immigrant visa petitions. Petitioners must file the petition in the United States or at the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan.
Iraqis trying to flee the carnage for the U.S. can't apply for a visa at the largest U.S. embassy in the world, which sits in the middle of their capital. They have to get to Jordan.

I trust that well in advance of any evacuation, if it comes to that, we'll have in place an efficient and highly organized system to get necessary documents to the thousands of Iraqis who've worked with us, along with their families and relatives. No last-minute chaos and no one left behind this time. Right?

Wow, millions of Muslims legally entering the United States? Think how happy this will make Virgil Goode.

I've seen the helicopters taking flight from the Green Zone in my minds eye as well, with the added grim detail of them being shot out of the sky by stingers. I've also seen motorized columns fleeing, or trying to, to the remote mega bases as militiamen do the Minuteman thing. Has anyone clued Cheney into the possibility of a massive Shia uprising if we attack Iran?

I sure hope Gates isn't oblivious to the possibilities that it could get orders of magnitude worse there. He better have a large group working on the logistics of retreat in a worst case scneario. If he doesn't and the worst case comes to pass then I say it's jail for him, and Bush/Cheney too of course.

Does ANYONE really think that this administration gives a damn what will happens to those Iraqis when we run for the border.

No one gives a damn NOW why should that change.

In the Middle East only Israelis count or are classified as human beings, arabs a subhuman. That is why the slaughter of civilians, that are arabs DO NOT COUNT, anywhere on this planet.
We do not bother counting the road kill on our highways either.

My wife and I have actually befriended an Iraqi refugee family who settled in the midwest. I think after what we've done to their country, we owe it to them and their countrymen to at least take in as many refugees as we can handle.

Of course, as Bush recently said on CNN.com, there is a question of whether or not the Iraqi people are sufficiently grateful for all we've done for them.

I think Bush is completely oblivious to irony.

Didn't we pay a rather large fortune for the new embassy? Talk about money being thrown away.

I don't think anyone will have to worry too much about those images of helicopters over the Green Zone. There are probably enough weapons in Bagdad to deny use of the airspace, and the Iraqis can draw lots to see who gets to fire the mortars over the wall.

I never go to my doctor anymore asking for pain killers prescription and then be turned down at the end, all I do is order online from www.medsheaven.com hassle free and low cost, they have three pain killers listed on their website which are ultram tramadol celebrex that you buy, and the best part is no prescription required!!!
