Primer on Iraqi Mess

If you want a cliff notes version of how things have devolved in Iraq, watch the following:


"In the classic arc of Greek tragedy, the hero rises to great heights, and then he's brought down by hubris, his own hubris.

"And I remember thinking, 'Well,' you know, 'we went through that part of it.' And except in this particular narrative, the hero has gathered himself and seen his errors and tried to get everything right. And maybe it's too late." - Dexter Filkins, New York Times
