An occupation which destabilizes

An excellent article at Working for Change about the Occupation of Iraq and how it has failed. The author is Patrick Cockburn who has been a reporter living in Iraq from 2003 to now. The article will become the forward to the paperback edition of his book: The Occupation - War and Resistance in Iraq.
At times, President Bush seemed intent on finding out how much damage could be
done to the U.S. by the conflict in Iraq. He did so by believing a high
proportion of his own propaganda about the resistance to the occupation being
limited in scale and inspired from outside the country. By 2007, the
administration was even claiming that the fervently anti-Iranian Sunni
insurgents were being equipped by Iran.
