What's going on with the insurgency in Iraq? 

Winds of Change has a nice links-rich post that summarizes the different diagnoses of the insurgency in Iraq, which remains something of an enigma. Is it mostly die hard Baathists, Islamicists jumping on the fly-paper from Iran and Syria, or tribal warfare designed to prevent the political ascendency of the Shiites? Does it matter if we are in fact winning? Finally, if we are winning, to what degree is our recent progress the result of experience at squad level that we will lose when the huge rotation occurs this spring?
