This is rather typical of Herr Boot. It might be revealing to look back on his predictions during the first stages of the war.

Talk about bloodthirsty. _And_ wrong -- because so totally Americo-centric: the rest of the world doesn't exist. The violence in Iraq comes from the minority Sunnis -- who will now be a permanent minority in a Shia state. The violence is directed against Shias -- read the newspaper reports; against govt entities (police stations, army recruitment centres, govt officials) -- in order to obtain more political power when the present interregnum ends. Americans are allies of the present govt in Iraq -- hence they too are attacked. But all this is clearly too complicated for the likes of the neocons (God help us.)
