Three views of Iraq converging from different directions:
Interesting lineup of local writers on Iraq, all agreeing something’s gone wrong but with different ideas on how to fix it: Jules Crittenden
and Jeff Jacoby
and Marty Meehan
. Jules and Jeff are pretty down on the UN. So be it. I support a UN role -- though not with the French and German blackmail strings attached -- as a way of filling in the gaps. So I suppose my sentiments come down on the side of Meehan, who rightly says the key is not more troops, but the right type of troops. His call for more commandos is particularly encouraging, from an armchair general's perspective.
