Good News From Basra, Iraq

The Brit troops in Basra are taking on corrupt Iraqi police units which have become death squads. Some, I guess, would see this as bad news--more evidence of the chaos overtaking Iraq, even in the Shia dominated south. Clear eyed people, however, with even a little bit of historical knowledge, will realize that having to take on a problem is not the end of the world. People tackle and solve problems created by other people all the time; and the Brits killing or arresting Iraqi murders in their section, who are helping spiral the country towards a Lebanon-like civil war, is a good thing.

God speed.
