Another diplomatic solution that Bushate-blinded "progressives" are stubbornly refusing to see.
- CAMP TAJI — Sunni and Shia tribal sheiks from Iraqi villages of Aqar Qaf, Bassam, Salamiyat and Fira Shia moved closer to reconciliation Monday here during a meeting facilitated by the 1st Battalion, 37th Field Artillery Regiment.
The sheiks put aside their differences to end violence in their villages and met to discuss ways of starting neighborhood watch programs made up of volunteers to protect their communities.
According to U.S. Army Lt. Col. Kenneth Kamper, commander of 1st Bn., 37th FA Regt., the sheiks are tired of attacks on innocent civilians and Coalition forces in their neighborhoods and want to put an end to the presence of al-Qaeda and other insurgent groups operating there.
"This is a monumental meeting," Kamper said. "This is the first time in more than three years that these tribes have sat down to talk — leaders from the west side who are Sunni and those from the east who are Shia."
In other developments throughout Iraq:
• Iraqi Soldiers and U.S. Paratroopers captured the ringleader of a cell responsible for conducting rocket attacks on the people and security forces of North Babil, Wednesday.
• Iraqi border guards led Coalition forces to two weapons stockpiles near the Iranian border, a sign they are taking steps to secure their nation.
