Iraq: The View From Up Close Iraq: The View From Up Close

StrategyPage: Iraq: The View From Up Close offers some more detail about what is going on in Iraq right now. The article looks at three factions trying to reimpose a dictatorship on Iraq: the Baathists, the Wahhabi jihadists, and some Shia trying to impose Shiite clerical rule as is practiced next door in Iran. But all these combined are probably less than 30% of the population, and are at odds with each other - indeed, most of the killing is between these groups. So, the average Iraqi wants us out, but not quite yet.
