Controlled Chaos?

Interesting post over at the Yorkshire Ranter, where Alex critiques John Robb’s suggestion that the US rely on ‘loyalist paramilitaries’ in Iraq:

Robb speaks of "controlled chaos" as an exit strategy from Iraq, but a continuing semi-failed state in Iraq will be poison to everyone involved, and anyway I doubt whether the chaos can be controlled. We’ve already seen (see Ranter passim) that a variety of highly profitable mercenary and criminal networks have moved into Iraq, as well as the jihadis. What happens when the class of people created by the war start exporting their revolution from the economic base Iraq gives them? (Yorkshire Ranter)
