Battle for Basra - worse for Maliki than we thought

Kevin Drum points to reports that many of Maliki's troops refused to fire on the Mahdi Army.

Those reports shows that Maliki is in much worse political shape than earlier reports have indicated.

The response from Bush and Bush-light (McCain) is going to have to be silence, lies or misdirection. This is not politically good for the American Republican administration that created the mess in Iraq, nor for the Republican old man who wants to replace Bush.
