Iraq situation getting more dicey
Despite President Obama's expression of optimism on his trip to Baghdad -- guess he has taken full ownership of the war now -- things are starting to crumble there. In my column this week for Antiwar.com, I note discontent and more among the Sunni Awakening forces and the lack still of a real political resolution. It may be that Iraq is not meant to have a central government that isn't ruthless and repressive. Ivan Eland's new book, "Partitioning for Peace," is looking more and more constructive. Possibly the last best hope.
