Today's Post of the Day is

right here. From the first paragraph:

It is a reminder of why Iraq was commanded through CENTCOM. During the days when the overt action was centered on Iraq, it was easy to forget that it was one battlefield within a theater. Now the theater itself has come to the fore and the atmosphere is one of 'breakout and pursuit'.

It invoked a wonderful image... Iraq as a torch of consuming, transforming fire, its burning edges slowly expanding, shooting out bolts of fire into its neighbors, disgorging burning embers high above the Middle East. Most of them flame out in the sky, some flame out upon the ground, but some catch fire. Beautiful.
