So Maliki has called off his offensive. I have to congratulate John Quiggin over at Crooked Timber, who posted the following on March 27th......

On past performance, the likely pattern will be one of initial success, followed by a lot of tough talk, and then a bloody stalemate, ending in a patched-up compromise.

I'd say he called it just about perfectly.
