  1. On Jamestown Kata’ib Hezbollah and the Intricate Web of Iranian Military Involvement in Iraq By: Thomas Strouse
    I do hope the friends of Qom get stuffed in the Iraqi election, the Iranians may have overplayed their a hand with al-Lamii and Chalabi's de-Baathfication antics and Saudis have been pumping cash in as they did in Lebanon so this may not be in vain.

    Jamestown also has No Place Like Home: Iraq’s Refugee Crisis Threatens the Future of Iraq By: Rachel Schneller
    My bold, so much for draining the swamp.

    The huge Iraqi refugee crisis is the most under reported consequence of the war. It was treated as an embarrassment and swept under the carpet during the Bush years. Barry has made no improvement on that short sighted policy, there are risks here that can at least be mitigated. New terrorist threats are already manifesting in Lebanon and Syria. Judging by the history of terrorism in the region it will be a couple of decades hence when we reap what we have sown.
