IRAQ, POST-WAR: Not sure what

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 2:47 pm

IRAQ, POST-WAR: Not sure what to think about how it’s going. As I wrote on April 9, it’s not going to be a smooth path. Bremer sounds serious about de-Baathification. That’s good, since up until now the Bushies didn’t seem to be paying attention to this issue. At the same time, Iraqi self-rule looks to be further off on the horizon than initially hoped. Not so sure about that. If delaying self-rule helps restore order, it’s probably okay for now; but the longer it’s delayed, the more we look like an occupying force.

UPDATE: This article is not encouraging.
