Maybe it's spring in the air, but the blogoid internets seemed to do a particularly good job yesterday of producing interesting analyses on Iraq. Five pieces on Iraq that you must read:
Spencer Ackerman: Ensuring Permanence: The Bush Administration Is Negotiating a Long-Term Iraq Occupation. (Also check out Ackerman's McCain Foreign Policy: Bush Doctrine Plus).
Tony Karon & Alastair Crooke: Iraq and U.S. Faith in Violence.
David Bromwich: Euphemism and American Violence.
John Robb: Sadr's Defensive Strategy.
Marc Lynch: Another theory for the pile.
