Here the CFR outlines, rather crudely, what the insurgency in Iraq is(ie. what groups make it up). It also postulates some goals for the "rivaling" factions. Of course the first two are a return to Ba'athist rule and/or the establishment of an Islamic state. Again, regarding the portrayal of the insurgency..."Paint them as Saddam supporters, or Al-Qaeda operatives (Associating the Iraqi resistance with 9/11), or even better-foreign fighters (Future targets Iran, Syria)."
