Basra

In the streets. Pipeline blown up. Hospitals full. And this:

During a briefing in Baghdad on Wednesday, a British military official said that of the nearly 30,000 Iraqi security forces involved in the assault, almost 16,000 were Basra police forces, which have long been suspected of being infiltrated by the same militias the assault was intended to root out.


Lovely.


Digg!

Oh, baby ... can you feel the surge?

It's working!

But is this a design flaw for an operational flaw?
