Danger in Iraq

From Dr. iRack:
In short, the clash over the provincial elections law brings to the surface a set of underlying conflicts between the "Powers That Be" and the "Powers That Aren't"--tensions that could unravel the hard-fought security progress over the past year. This speaks to a broader theme from Dr. iRack's recent crisscrossing of Iraq: violence is down (way down), but the fundamental political problems and divisions in the country remain unresolved. In this context, the longer the provincial elections are delayed, the higher the prospects for renewed civil strife.
