Over at Millennial, Robert Christian on the threat of genocide in Iraq. He rightly places the lion's share of the blame for the turmoil on the terrorists themselves, but notes that they got their opportunity because the Bush administration completely misunderstood the consequences of their decision to go to war and the Obama administration completely failed to aid the moderate opposition to Assad in Syria. Good stuff.
