"a small minority of the population is carrying out the looting"
Yet the headline claims that Baghdad is "descending into chaos."
There will be a period of time where the decades of pen up rage against the Baathists will result in looting of former sites of power. I also think there will be a blood bath against Saddam's thugs when the are caught.
The only way for the allies to stop this now would be to become as repressive as the people we just ousted.
The Iraqis will stop this in their own time. We are not conquerors.

When exactly does a quagmire turn into chaos?
Standard leftist BBC handwringing...
Things will settle down in a few days, and they know it.
