Failed State oder Failed Insurgency?26. August 2008, von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken
Treffende Worte von Nibras Kazimi zur Lage im und der Zukunft des Irak:
The Iraq story is getting boring, and that’s a good thing. The ‚analysts‘ and ‚experts‘ who staked their reputations on the idea that Iraq is a failed state are feverishly hoping that the embers of violence would catch fire anew so that a certain presidential candidate may win and they’d get to keep their fake status of self-styled ‚expertise‘. My own reading of the situation is that is futile to go delving into the ashes of a failed insurgency that hasn’t got the wherewithal to burst aflame again.
