Thinking about the surge

I've spent the last three days in bed feeling lousy with the flu - hence no blogging. But that, plus indirect flights to Brussels and back last week, has let me do a load of reading. The books that I have got through out of my big "to read" pile, I'll try and review here at some point, but I also read this Rolling Stone article: "The Myth of Surge", by the ever excellent Nir Rosen.

For anyone interested in Iraq it is important if depressing reading, and essentially demonstrates what is happening now is what cautious analysts were warning last summer.
