Iraq…the worst is yet to come

February 14th, 2010

Washington Post special military correspondent, and Pulitzer Prizer winner Thomas Ricks predicts that the war in Iraq is likely to last at least another five to ten years.  He argues that invading Iraq was perhaps the worst decision in the history of American foreign policy.  As such, we've made a mess that won't be easy to clean up and that this preemptive and false war will continue to haunt us.  Iraq was an epic mistake for which there are now few good solutions.  He concludes that the worst may still be ahead of us.  His book The Gamble: General Petraeus and the American Military Adventure in Iraq is put just out in paperback.
