This is what's left to laud

Quoth Glenn Reynolds:

STRATEGYPAGE OFFERS A RATHER POSITIVE TAKE on what's going on in Anbar province:

Coalition forces in Iraq have suddenly received the manpower equivalent of three light infantry divisions...

The story, if you actually read it, is how the ongoing power vacuum in Anbar has led to local warlords there forming their own 30,000 strong Sunni militia. Hey, it worked, for the Shiites and Kurds. The idea that it will somehow contribute to stability, is of course illusory.
