The Fall of Mosul is an indictment of the Bush Administration and, before that, the British Empire. Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki can only get Iraq back by allying with nationalist Sunnis in the north. Otherwise, for him to simply brutally occupy the city with Shiite troops and artillery and aerial bombings, will make him look like his neighbor, Bashar al-Assad.
