Let's re-invade Iraq!

Who said that? None other than Tom Friedman: (emp add)
Given this, we need to face our real choices in Iraq, which are: 10 months or 10 years. Either we just get out of Iraq in a phased withdrawal over 10 months, and try to stabilize it some other way, or we accept the fact that the only way it will not be a failed state is if we start over and rebuild it from the ground up, which would take 10 years. This would require reinvading Iraq, with at least 150,000 more troops, crushing the Sunni and Shiite militias, controlling borders, and building Iraq’s institutions and political culture from scratch.
Full essay and biting commentary by Chris Floyd here (via post at Tom Tomorrow).


Damn, that jerk Friedman has been stealing my schtick! I've been saying that a re-invasion is called for for quite some time now.
