Cut And Run

From Holden:

Juan Cole on today’s revelation that US reconstruction in Iraq is ending, according to the Washington Post.

If the US were staying in Iraq in a big way, and still hoping to make a significant place for the multinationals there, it would have to bite the bullet and continue to try to do reconstruction. If the Bush administration is throwing in the towel, then whether Iraqis have enough electricity really isn’t its problem any more.
