More on Iraq 

Accordring to the Associated Press, Iraq's leadership council wants to open up the country's industries -- with the exception of the oil industry -- to foreign investment. Of course, leftists could plausibly argue that the US wants the exclusive privilege of being able to negotiate favorable trading terms with the Iraqi oil industry, much as it does (unwisely) with the Saudi oil industry...

Also, an item from the Washington Post suggesting that Russia may be softening its stance on the US occupation of Iraq.
