Glenn Reynolds has posted a fresh interview with Michael Yon. I just listened, but Glenn sums it up nicely:

(1) It's likely to get worse before it's better; (2) No one seems to doubt Iranian backing for the violence; (3) This isn't about religion, it's about money and power; and (4) Unlike Al Qaeda in the north, this isn't so much a fight to the finish as violence as a negotiating tactic.

Go listen to the whole thing, and if you missed it be sure to check Roggio's post from earlier today, "Give War a Chance." Roggio just got back yesterday from a few weeks in Iraq, and he adds some fresh reporting from MNF-Baghdad as well.

And the title of this post, good stuff from this album.
