Baghdad Vigilantes

For a very interesting and completely different perspective than anything else I've read on what's going in in Iraq, I highly recommend the TCS Daily article "Baghdad Vigilantes and the Dark Side of Civil Society" by Frederick Turner.

The article argues that what we're seeing in Iraq is not a run up to civil war, but a vigilante clean up operation that's frequently preceded functioning democracies throughout modern history.
