New Column: Divorce, Iraqi Style
I've pained over this column, but I think now is the time to start saying these things: check it out over here, Divorce, Iraqi Style. I was surprised by how much damage the concept of Iraq had undergone within me over the last 2.5 years; I feel totally unsentimental about Iraq staying as one country. I shall be saddened by the fallout of dismemberment, but at this point, it feels like a price we must and can pay after the campaign of terrorism we have endured and continue to endure.
I am in Damascus now, hence the sporadic blogging. I may write about Syria soon.
