The Basrian Situation

I don't think anyone could have put it better than David Kurtz at TalkingPointsMemo has:


Within less than a week the Basra offensive has gone from "a defining moment" in Iraqi's history, in the President's words, to an operation conceived by Maliki that the U.S. didn't plan, had little warning of, and couldn't control.

heh, indeed and stuff.
