Apres nous, le deluge
James Fallows posts an email from a friend of his who recently sat next to an Army sergeant coming back from Iraq:
- Surge has “worked” because Iraqis who just want to start killing one another again are biding their time. Après nous, le deluge.
- No one could comprehend the waste of money in US expenditures in Iraq.
- IEDs have become infinitely more sophisticated, very high tech now, and can penetrate all but one type of US vehicle. Suicide bombers can penetrate anything they want.
