Exit Strategies for Iraq

2 Comments

Here’s an interesting piece in the Washington Post about what might happen when the US withdraws from Iraq.

I regret not blogging before the war started. It would have been good if I could have pointed to a blog post predicting the same thing before the invasion took place. I’ve always thought that the two possibilities for Iraq were for the country to be partitioned (which would be likely to weaken Turkey and strengthen Iran and thus be avoided by the US if possible) or run by an absolute despot.

    It’s not really surprising, given the history of the area.. :-(
