"Give me 30 weight or give me death!" just doesn't have that ring to it.

Commenter Buck Fush at Sadly, No! points to a Guardian article about the US negotiating with Iraq insurgents.
A US embassy official in Baghdad said efforts were under way to "engage" elements of the resistance in an apparent softening of the Bush administration's opposition to negotiations.

"In order to achieve stability and [an] end to the insurgency and stop Iraqis from being killed in large numbers, the insurgency has to be addressed," the official told reporters.

This brings up an interesting point - that people who are fighting because fighting's their only option are damn tough to beat. You can kill them, but you cannot easily defeat them, no matter how much bullshit you feed yourself about being a Hero of Democracy and Bringing Freedom to the World.

A word of caution to the insurgents: don't put too much faith in what you're told by US authorities. They don't have much of a track record on keeping their word. Just ask a Native American, if you can find one.
