War Redux

In my post of 2/09/09, “Scared S***less”, I referred you to Tom Ricks’ thoughts on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Ricks has a piece in the “Outlook” section of the Washington Post today:

Go ahead and read it.  His premise that the major events of the Iraq War haven’t even happened yet was one of the most unsettling and frightening things I have read.  He explains thing well.  Sooner or later we are going to have to address the situation in Iraq and if you are interested in the outcome, Ricks will help you understand where we are coming from and where we need to go.  Knowledge helps, but I am still scared s***less.
