Is Iraq safer today?

June 9, 2006 by

The ink was barely dry on the quoted predictions that the killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in Iraq would reduce violence and begin to normalize politics in Iraq when a rash of bombs killed 40 people in Baghdad. The government responded by (this is true) banning driving in Baghdad.

such absurdidties should be expected from statists. This same twisted logic has prevailed in the U.S. and western socialist-democracies for a century (gun control) An even more assinine phenomenon is “OPSEC” which forbids the use of electronic communications to relay critical information in a timely manner. The great thing is that such self-defeating measures hasten the fall of the state and usher in an era of common sense

Now, if we just ban living outside the Green Zone and other US military bases in Iraq, we’ll have won!
