Najaf and Basra

The news from Basra during this Najaf crisis shows why we can't simply regard the problems of Iraq as an insurgency by a fixed number of fighters. This story, for example, mentions that some soldiers currently serving with the official Iraqi forces may go over to Muqtada Sadr if the Americans in Najaf aren't replaced with Iraqis.
