stephen biddle senator

"A stabilized Iraq is likely to look more like Bosnia or Kosovo than Germany or Japan. And like Bosnia and Kosovo, a substantial outside presence will be needed for many years to keep such a peace."

-Dr. Stephen Biddle, Senior Fellow on Defense Policy for the Council on Foreign Relations, testifying before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations about the future of U.S. presence in Iraq.

Unfortunately, the Doc seems to have a point. A pdf of his prepared testimony is here.
