So, um... does anyone know what's going on in Iraq? I mean, it looks really bad. Michael Ware is on CNN telling the bobble-headed anchor that rival neighbourhoods are having mortar duels between each other, something I really just can't imagine.
It might have been possible to have a US withdrawal that "only" had the Iraqi state collapse after the last US soldier left, not so long ago. I think now the only reasonable expectation is that the Iraqi state is going to collapse around the Americans, forcing them to fight their way out of Iraq.
Boy, it's like Bosnia, Somalia, and (maybe) Rwanda all in one. But remember everyone - no matter how bad it gets, the US should stay, or else it could get even worse.
