Study Warns Of Collapse in Iraq

It is getter closer and closer to total deterioration in Iraq, surge or no surge. Senator Reid was right:
A report released Thursday by Chatham House, a foreign policy research center in Britain, challenged the notion that violence in Iraq has subsided since the buildup of U.S. troops, saying, for instance, that car bombings had not diminished and arguing that radical groups were simply lying low.

"It can be argued that Iraq is on the verge of being a failed state which faces the distinct possibility of collapse and fragmentation," the report said.

The recent attacks in the Green Zone is proof of that:
Meanwhile, the Associated Press reported that a recent mortar attack on a U.S. Air Force base in Taji, just north of Baghdad, had damaged about 10 helicopters, most lightly. No one was injured in the attack.

A mortar shell landed inside the heavily fortified Green Zone, headquarters of the Iraqi government and U.S. forces, in central Baghdad on Thursday for the third day in a row. No one was reported injured. About a dozen mortar shells hit the Green Zone on Wednesday, killing two Iraqis and wounding 10 people.

And our troops continue to die ignominiously from roadside bombs:
The U.S. military reported that three soldiers were killed Thursday when their patrol was struck by a roadside bomb south of Baghdad.
