By Robert S. Leiken
THE RIOTS IN France should be no surprise to anyone familiar with that country or, for that matter, with Western Europe.

And the young Muslims living in these banlieues outside Paris, Lyon and Marseilles are no less alienated than those living near Amsterdam, Barcelona and London.

The U.S. military claims it has cleared the western town of Husaybah of insurgents as it ends the latest in a series of counterinsurgency sweeps (Reuters) in the heavily Sunni Anbar province. Experts say the United States should follow up these offensives with more reconstruction aid and security forces, as the UN Security Council unanimously extends the U.S.-led multinational force mandate until the end of 2006 (Financial Times). Reconstruction efforts in Iraq—outlined in this CFR Background Q&A—have been hindered by a lack of security, according to a recent report by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR). As a result, Iraqis still lack basic amenities like heating oil, electricity, and water. Stuart Bowen Jr., SIGIR’s inspector general, talks to National Public Radio about the challenges of reconstruction, while the National Review Online argues real reconstruction progress has been made. Islamic law expert Noah Feldman tells CFR's Bernard Gwertzman the U.S. must not leave Iraq before security is ensured.

Iraq --- Cold War II --- Back with a vengeance!

The war in Iraq is a critical blunder by State Department of the United States. The U.S.S.R. was before its break up was allied with Iran in its war against Iraq. Iraq at the time had the support of the State Department of the United States. You remember the Axiom the enemy of my enemy is my friend. So when the U.S.S.R. dissolved some in the state department that we no longer had to keep supporting Iraq. So Saddam stopped getting the due he was felt so he tried to conquer Kuwait. This pissed off to many in the world so the U.S.A. and the rest of the world stepped in and sent his soldiers packing back to Iraq. Now when Iraq became has become further destabilized the U.S. had to go in and insure the safety of our worlds needed oil supply. Flash forward till now and what is happening Iran wants to control its nuclear destiny and who is supporting them Russia a former member of the U.S.S.R. club. So the real question is Russia attempting a come back?
