Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

Good News from Iraq

I've been busy this summer with a hundred different projects and haven't spent very much time cruising the Internet for news, but I did come across one thing this morning. According to Dan Froomkin, there has been a shift in strategy in Iraq, or rather a shift in focus. This shift will first show itself as a U.S. troop buildup in Baghdad. America, rather than fighting a war on terror in Iraq, will now fight against both sides in a religious war.
Maybe this isn't such good news...
Actually, I wonder if this really represents a change in focus at all. Didn't we know even back during the Bush Sr. administration and the (first) Gulf War that this would happen if we took out Saddam? Wasn't this basically inevitable? Does anybody seriously suggest that we didn't see this coming?
