Just another day in the life and death of Iraq XXIV

By Michael J.W. Stickings

More of the same:

More than 50 people have been killed in three car bomb blasts in the centre of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, police say.

At least 90 were wounded when the cars exploded in quick succession in a busy shopping area of the city.

It just goes on and on. And Maliki's recent guarantee that Iraqi forces would be ready by mid-2007 hardly inspires much in the way of confidence. Even if he's right, which he likely isn't, there's no way these Iraqi forces -- whatever that even means, given the sectarianism of those forces -- would be able to control, let alone curb, this violence.
