Liberal academic Juan Cole at his blog about the UN bombing:

"I don't personally see an easy way for the US to get out of all this
gracefully, and fear that things will end in fiasco. The only question is
whether it will be a Haiti or Somalia-type fiasco, where things go bad again
after the US leaves, but life limps along; or whether it will be an
Iran-type fiasco (1978-79) where there is a revolution against the US fueled
in part by nationalist resentment of US intervention."
