Iraqi Insurgency Explained

July 12, 2004 at 11:19 pm | Posted in Politics | Leave a comment

Geopolitical/terrorism analyst John Robb has posted an article that explains the situation in Iraq a whole lot better than the us-vs-them and kill-em-all attitude of the Bush Administration.

The anarchy and uncertainty in post-Saddam Iraq has led to the formation of decentralized groups ranging from Al Qaeda to Iraqi nationalists to private armies. Even though the focus of these groups are against the American occupation, there may be enough conflict here to start a civil war (if or when US forces leave). Robb’s one-slide summary shows the relationship of various groups engaged in a “bazaar of violence”.
