Michael Yon’s my favorite Iraq correspondent. Here’s his take on the civil war debate:

There is nothing written in any holy scripture — so far as I know — that says Iraq cannot make it. Iraq can, but will it? Not if we don’t stop quibbling over definitions and just come to grips that the fire is growing. This is not a fire we can afford to leave to natural forces. Not in that tinderbox we call the Middle East.

Seems like a good point.
