War of the Mosques

Things don't look so good in Iraq. Reading Juan Cole will scare the pants off you today.

War Nerd was quite correct about the Surge: That's what we just did under Petraeus: switched sides, Shia to Sunni, because the Shia were getting too strong.

I have more info but I'm short on time. I'll fill in the blanks tomorrow. But note that L'Orient Le-Jour reports that thousands of Christians are fleeing Baghdad.

Tomorrow may indeed be the day when it all come crashing down. You know what I mean.
