Same S*#T, Different Day

Juan Cole has a great roundup today on Iraq (it's always good, today is particularly on point).

The short version is that conservative pundits are clueless about the politics of Iraq, al Sadr has zero intention of "disbanding", for the Iraq government to continue to try and fight al Sadr is suicide, Baghdad (and the rest of Iraq) is a mess with perpetual fighting, and Petraus is trotting out the same ole' dog n' pony show in Congress.

Like the title says.

OH! And just so you know officially. The right reverend Sistani has told Sadr to keep his militia intact. Do you think al Sadr knew that before making the offer?
