This is written in August of 2008, so it's a bit unfair, but I can't resist sharing my pleasure in how stupid your battle of Basra article was back in March. Basra was a huge military and political victory, of course. Now that the Russians have spoiled the fun in Beijing, perhaps the strategic importance of Iraq and our presence there is clear even to the juveniles who seem to write for this journal. Sorry for the retrospective, but this is my first visit here. I'm a grown-up, am I still welcome?
