THE IRAQI ELECTIONS….I suppose I should comment on the Iraqi elections, shouldn’t I? Well, here’s my comment: it’s genuinely wonderful that they went well, but I don’t think they’re going to make much difference. The underlying dynamics that are driving the insurgency haven’t really changed, and might, in fact, have gotten a bit worse. And if there’s any lesson we’ve learned over the past couple of years in Iraq, it’s to pay attention to those underlying dynamics, and not get too distracted by day-to-day news, both good and bad.
