Iraq

I hope for the best for Iraq but can this provisional gov't really hold onto things. The atmosphere is so volatile. The gov't has little infrastructure let alone security!

There is speculation that pushing up the changeover was not just for security reasons, which seems logical and VERY smart, but there is a huge element of American politics. With this the Bush administration can say: "See, we brought the new Iraqi gov't into power before we had planned to." I tend to be a little naive/optimistic when it comes to stuff like that. I don't want to believe that kind of thinking is at play.

We'll see.
