Iraq...the worst is yet to come

Washington Post special military correspondent Thomas Ricks predicts that the war in Iraq is likely to last at least another five to ten years.  He argues that invading Iraq was perhaps the worst decision in the history of American foreign policy.  As such we've made a mess that won't be easy to clean up as this preemptive and false war will continue to haunt us.  Ricks' believes that Iraq was an epic mistake for which there are now few good solutions.  He concludes that the worst may still be ahead of us.  His book The Gamble: General Petraeus and the American Military Adventure in Iraq is put just out in paperback.
