Graduate level commentary on Iraq

Wretchard over at The Belmont Club builds off his own work leveraged with Iraq the Model's latest from Baghdad. It has pictures, diagrams and some solid brain work. Here is a taste, but you need to read it all. Start with TBC and the ITM.
The insurgent's conference also provides a glimpse of how the struggle in Iraq is fully international. Elements in Syria and Iran are probably fully behind the politico-military campaign. It is not a case of Iraqi "Minutemen" struggling against the new Redcoats. Rather, Iraq is a central front of the War on Terror. Now putting both pictures together may give us some insight into how both sides are conducting their campaign. You can see both teams playing on the field and keep score, to use a sports analogy.
