Must reading from Iraq the Model. I concur with the Mickster that Omar is far more informative than anything I can find in the Western media. Of course: this is opaque stuff. Who’s bluffing, who’s dealing, who’s killing: to outsiders, these nuances are almost impossible to understand, let alone follow on a daily basis. Which is why the utopian idea that we really could transform Iraq is slowly yielding to the meliorist notion that we can help guide it haphazardly, and dangerously, forward.
