Im Osten etwas neues

Ahead of the deadline for what Frank Rich calls a shotgun constitution, two stories from the Washington Post worth a look:

U.S. Lowers Sights On What Can Be Achieved in Iraq reports senior administration officials as saying that they no longer expect to see a model new democracy, a self-supporting oil industry or a society in which the majority of people are free from serious security or economic challenges.

Iraqi Sunnis Battle To Defend Shiites reports local Sunni Muslim tribes defying attempts by Abu Musab Zarqawi to drive Shiite residents from Ramadi.

What, if anything, does this portend for Charles Krauthammer's Neoconservative Convergence?
