Iraq Insurgency - Not Foreign

The 'myth' of Iraq's Foreign Fighters

The idea that a vast majority of the insurgents in Iraq are Iraqi's has been kicked around before, mostly out of the public eye, and I think its right.
The scary thing is going to be the amount of experienced "jihadists" who come out of the Iraq conflict. Theres concern over the few foreign fighters exporting their lessons learned but the Iraqi fighters who are becoming more and more aligned with jihadist causes (not just Iraqi causes) and gaining invaluable battle experience are going to bring a level of training (the best kind, through experience) and skill to the table that hasnt been seen in the current generations since the vetrans of the Afghan/Russian war.
