Jason Ditz, managing news editor at Antiwar.com, discusses Muqtada al-Sadr’s proclamation that US troops (even if called “trainers”) remaining in Iraq beyond the 2011 deadline will be resisted; the possibility of another multi-year Iraq war starting back up; misleading news accounts from last year on the end of combat operations; yet another claim of military progress from Libya’s unreliable rebels; the antics of Colonel Gaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam, who now claims he will help Libya become an Islamic state, after previous dire warnings about the same outcome; and the Obama administration’s apparent preference for a stronger strongman in Yemen to rule with an iron fist and crush the opposition.
