An interesting analysis from one of Haaretz's best writers. I'm a little more worried then he is. Iraq is clearly adopting a delay strategy, the idea being that the longer the war goes on and the higher the casualty lists go, the less support the US will have at home and abroad and the more the Arab world will slide towards conflagration. I think they're right and as a result we should hit Baghdad with everything we've got now and end this thing. The Iraqis think time is on their side and are playing their cards accordingly, the only response to that strategy is immediate initiative.
