A new article by our regular guest Sandy Davies! He writes:
Yes, that’s right. We’ve exported “lesser evil” politics to Iraq.  But in Iraq, it’s about who is less likely to take you away, torture and kill you.  For most people in western and northern Iraq, the Iraqi government death squads who the U.S. recruited, trained, unleashed and still supports are a greater threat than the Islamic State.  Resistance will remain a rational choice for millions of Iraqis as long as the U.S. offers them only death squads and air strikes, as it has done for 10 years.
