Iraqi insurgent group prepared to fight for dozen years, Web posting says
The Islamic Army in Iraq insurgent group is capable of fighting for a dozen years, but isn't opposed to negotiations with the United States, according to an interview posted Monday on an Islamic Web site.

"The Islamic Army in Iraq will be able to stand for more than the next 12 years fighting the enemies of God, until they are defeated," al-Shammari said, according to the interview.

However, "truce and peace talks are our religious duty," he said, according to the interview. "We are ready for any kind of negotiations, public or discreet, or even through intermediates."

The Islamic Army in Iraq is believed to include former members of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party, his intelligence service and former army officers.

They will fight just like the the Taliban fought the Russians....they broke the Russian military....

4. These people will hold out..
I am suprised that we are still in Iraq. Why don't we just cut the funding? That would get them out of there.
