Political Hurdles in Iraq

So how goes the war? A commenter posted a blurb earlier today saying that the surge is going just swell. Only if you're reading the Weekly Standard.

Earlier in the week, 1,500 Iraqi soldiers deserted or refused to fight against Moqtada al-Sadr's Shia militia in Basra.

Another report out today says that political progress in Iraq is so slow and fragmentary that U.S. forces are no closer to leaving than they were one year ago.
