JAMES JOYNER thinks there may be an upside to Iraqi civil war. Hmm. Mickey Kaus said the same thing a while back, but as I’ve noted here before, I think it’s better off avoided. This kind of thinking reminds me of Josh Marshall’s worries in 2003 that we didn’t kill enough Iraqis to ensure stable government postwar. Of course, some people today might say he was right about that, though I haven’t noticed any I-told-you-sos on this account from Josh.
