Have an essay on Iraq

Just wanted to point people to my latest essay on the recent situation in Iraq.
It's sad to see the return of violence to Iraq, but only the most deluded must have not seen it coming. As we pulled out the underlying forces for a return to civil war was still there. Nothing indicates that we applied the necessary pressure to the Iraqi and Iranian government to make sure the situation didn't fall back into chaos.

You can find the article here. Thanks to Juan Cole (at juancole.com for the opportunity to put up the essay.
