Curfew in Baghdad (update)

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Iraq the Model's Omar has an update on the curfew in Baghdad (which we previously reported on here): "Saturday has been so quiet so far, never a single explosion happened as far as I know and there was hardly any sound of gunfire in or around our district in Baghdad. What can be noticed about this particular curfew is that it's being strictly enforced by Iraqi and US forces in Baghdad."

Okay, but is this how "peace" will be achieved in Baghdad? What about the rest of Iraq? Is it possible to enforce "peace" in this way? Is it even "peace" at all? It would seem that this is but a temporary period of "quiet" achieved through a short-term clampdown.

The violence will resume. A lasting peace is a long way off.
