Freedom in Baghdad

April 8, 2008 by

Here we get the news: “The Baghdad military command said Tuesday that unauthorized vehicles and motorcycles will be banned in the capital from 5 a.m. to midnight Wednesday. The vehicle ban is aimed at preventing violence on the fifth anniversary of the capture of Baghdad by U.S. troops about a month after the war started…. The boom of explosions could be heard across much of Baghdad, apparently coming from the neighborhood in eastern Baghdad. Low-flying jets circled the center of the capital several hours before sunrise.”

You know this is awfully similar to what the Soviet Union did. They placed particular importance on dates of conquering, and used draconian measures to enforce civil order on that particular day… what happens the other day seems of little importance.

And thus temporary decisions seem to take precedence over real long term solutions.
