Joe Guzzardi on Iraq and the Draft

Joe Guzzardi is not happy at our prospects in Iraq.

I agree with him on this:

" Under no circumstances will the status quo in Iraq continue into 2006."

But I disagree on this:

"Expect to see the draft reinstated. Then we’ll find out just how popular Bush’s war really is."

If we get to the point where we rally start losing control, we will find a way to maintain control with the forces we have. Which is a nice way of saying that we will ge significantly more brutal. To put down the Sunni insurgency, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a resort to concentration camps and mass executions. Not because we are evil, but because if we insist on staying in Iraq, it will be the only way to maintain order. Although I suppose one might argue that in such a case, a determination to stay is evil.

That is all.
