How do we get out of Iraq? Part 2: "Obviously the situation is now massively more difficult than it would have been if the reconstruction had been handled correctly from the start. But the real question remains, is the US willing to hand over authority to a representative Iraqi government which is likely to be anti-American and anti-Israeli? If not, the danger parallels the problems experienced with Vietnamisation. Already there is a stream of violent attacks on Iraqis who are working with the coalition."

Clare Short offers the best analysis in what is otherwise dreary, out of touch pro-imperialist commentary in this 2-part Guardian piece.
