Between Iraq and a Hard Place

A friend of mine edits a new site in the Newsweek and Washington Post network called Post Global. David Ignatius and Fareed Zakaria post questions about international affairs, and reporters and writers from different regions around the world post short essays in response. I encourage everyone to check it out, and a good place to start is "America, It's Your Baby," by Lebanon's Michael Young, which has kicked a reader-comment beehive and responds to Ignatius's question:
There are two kinds of land mines: the kind that explodes when you step on it, and the kind that explodes when you take your foot off. Which kind is Iraq? How can it be defused?
