WAR: Real Allies

Polish troops take over administration of southern Iraq, including the Shiite holy city of Najaf.

For the record, count me among those concerned that the U.S. is considering handing over more control to the same U.N. that shamefully rejected U.S. offers of security assistance at the headquarters that was bombed and that continued to employ Baathist sympathizers as guards. I'd have no problem with getting U.N. help if that would make Iraq more secure -- but I see nothing in the U.N.'s record to suggest that it will do so.
