“Surge” into Baghdad prompts surge of insurgent violence in Diyala, presumably because folks just moved over there. Now there’s going to be a “mini-surge” of additional forces to Diyala to clamp down on the new problems there.

UPDATE: Oh, also, remember when killing Abu Musab al-Zarqawi meant we didn’t need to worry about his local jihadist franchise anymore? Oh, well.
