On the ground in Baghdad

Posted by sanityinjection on May 12, 2009

I commend to you this piece from Michael J. Totten, an independent journalist in Baghdad trying to get a feel for what conditions are like in Iraq now and what the future holds. Totten’s writing style is informal and engaging, and he offers an interesting comparison between Shia militias in Iraq and Hezbollah in Lebanon – and a possible connection between the two. He also explores Iran’s role in Iraq and how a US withdrawal is likely to impact the balance of power in Iraq.
