This is what I get for defending the Bush administration:

The American occupation authority in Iraq, apparently preserving the prewar distinction between Kurdish-controlled northern areas and the rest of the country, will allow Kurdish fighters to keep their assault rifles and heavy weapons, but require Shiite Muslim and other militias to surrender theirs, according to a draft directive.
The problem with drawing this distinction is that a lot of these Kurdish fighters have been using their heavy equipment to bully their way into new home ownership. Once again we see that loyalty is more important to our president than consistency.
