Blood Red, Green Zone

April 12, 2007

The bombing at the Iraqi parliament building raises the specter of something I’ve been worried about for a long time. The insurgents can do anything they want, anywhere they want in Iraq. The Green Zone can change in an instant from a shelter to a deathtrap.

While Bush keeps stalling and playing out his string in order to keep the Iraq occupation going until he is out of office and can pin the blame for what happens next on his (presumably Democratic) successor in the White House, the risk of something happening along the lines of the truck-bombing of the Marines barracks in Lebanon back in the 1980s gets higher and higher. While the Republicans do everything they can to dick this around and delay the necessary withdrawal, our soldiers grow more vulnerable by the day.
