How is it really going in Iraq? The BBC, NPR and Reuters all seem to feel that the fuse has been lit on a powderkeg, and it is only a matter of time before the situation deteriorates and gets out of control.
I've always suspected that the situation was more nuanced, and I think this story in the Washington Post is a probably as good an illustration of what is going there as any.
Building Iraq into anything like a democracy - if that can be done at all - is going to be a long, tough process. But there are glimmers of hope.
