Of course Iraq is still a mess

Chris Floyd writes about the recent escalation of violence, which even reportedly has Sunni leaders begging US troops to stay, and relates it to earlier reports on the US employing the "Salvador option" and support of militias:
Can it really be a complete and total coincidence, an amazing accident of history, that the "blood-dimmed tide" now loosed upon Iraq follows so closely upon the Bush Regime's plans to foment terrorism, employ death squads and "ride with the bad boys" in order to achieve its strategic goals--and that the reign of terrorism, death squads and bad boys now ravaging Iraq has convinced even some of the most recalcitrant opponents of the occupation that American forces should stay in Iraq--which happens to be one of the Regime's primary strategic goals?
