The failure of the Iraqi army. Instead, the past month saw a major milestone in the maturation of Iraq’s military. During the mini-crisis that followed the Samarra bombing, the Iraqi army put over 100,000 soldiers into the country’s streets. They defused budding confrontations and calmed the situation without killing a single civilian. And Iraqis were proud to have their own army protecting them.
