Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq by Thomas E Ricks
Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq

cberglund, August 9, 2007

I think the Publisher's Weekly review is "spot on" including their comment about the author being a bit naive regarding his hoped for outcome(s). Clearly the indignities that were amassed upon this culture by our Military and the CPA, so vividly detailed in this book, will never be forgotten by a large group of Iraq citizens. With that kind of distrust I see no way that a continued US Military presence within the towns and cities of Iraq will add anything to a long term solution of impacting the insurgency. Even if it's absence means any greater chaos than exists today.
