Iraq orders its forces to confront armed groups

BAGHDAD, Oct 23 (Reuters) - Iraq has ordered its military forces to confront any attempts by armed groups to break the law, the government said in a statement shortly after imposing a curfew in the tense southern Shi'ite town of Amara on Monday.

"Lately, unlawful armed operations have increased, which is putting the security and the political stability of the country in danger," the statement said.

"Everybody should know that orders were given to our armed forces to confront any attempts at violating the law, whoever is the source."

1. Well, now all of that is taken care of. Who knew all that was
needed was an "order"? So simple. I guess it's all over now, eh?

6. That will work...
Its forces are full of the "armed groups" they are 'now' ordered to confront... Not that they were ever ordered to confront armed groups before that 'new' order was given to them.

Like a dog chasing its tail... Round 'n a_round. :(
