The Price Paid by Others
I missed an important Aug.14 post from Alaa of the Mesopotamian that has shaken me up a little. He has rendered an eloquent cri de coeur that all Americans should read. I don't know what set him off (maybe something like this), but he is worried now about our reliability as allies. His latest post delineates the likely consequences of a precipitous US pullout. Commenters did not seem to understand quite what he was saying.
