One bad guy at a time
Posted by Patrick Barry

Ilan's post on the latest development of identifying Iran as our new enemy in Iraq underscores an important flaw in the way conservatives have approached Iraq in general.  It's demonstrative of a failure to grasp the fact that forces in Iraq opposed to the United States are comprised of multiple movements, with shifting motivations and intentions. If we follow the logic of focusing solely on AQI, or Iranian-backed special groups, or any other entity, our troops will never be able to do more than play dutch-boy as the occupation drains our country of blood and treasure.
