The Sadr City War on Drugs

· dKo journal

A fairly harsh crackdown in the War on Drugs–primarily alcohol–has apparently taken hold in Sadr City and other Iraqi centers where US military power is weak.
I personally find this overzealous, hard-line Islamist drug-law enforcement to be both abusive and intolerant–though I don’t doubt they can point to many depredations of alcohol on individuals and families that would trouble anyone.
But if the American Right wishes to deploy our military forces to protect Drug King Pins, I am sure they could find plenty of work counterattacking DEA offensives much closer to home.
And save a whole lot on gas.
