Economist.com | Iraq: “The deadline can and must be met, and the latest plan adhered to, otherwise America’s already bruised authority will be battered again, perhaps irrecoverably. By June 30th, the American proconsul, Paul Bremer, and his leading cohorts should head home and an Iraqi government must then seek to convince the people that gradually, with friendly foreign guns still at their side, they can and will take charge of their own fate. For that to happen, the Americans and their allies must steel their nerves, use guile as well as brawn, and explain with brutal candour to people at home and abroad exactly what it is they are trying to do. Despite the recent mayhem, the game in Iraq is far from lost.”
