Meanwhile, in Iraq ....

.... 11 killed in a single day:

Attacks killed 11 people in Iraq yesterday, officials said, including six who were snatched from their homes and shot dead, the latest in spiralling violence.
Let's do a little historical quasi-experiment in cause and effect.

Before the US invaded: Iraqis were killing each other.
During the US occupation: Iraqis were killing each other and killing Americans
After the US left: Iraqis continue killing each other.

If the goal of US military intervention in the Middle East is to stop these people from killing each other then .... why do we think this is going to work?
