LOL. Like Hersh, I wrote a “Gray Zone” post too, back in January.
The US military is still talking about Baathist holdouts as the problem in Iraq. I see something different: a civil war in the making. Lots of old scores to settle. Lots of money (read Oil) and power at stake. Years of repression to redress.
There are so many fault lines in Iraq that it will be impossible for the US to differentiate between friends from enemies. This is a gray zone. It is something that the US military (and our leadership) has historically had severe problems with. In the gray-zone of Iraq, good and evil are terms that get you into trouble.
