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?
