Following yesterday’s ill-fated military operation in Wadi Horan, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has warned demonstrators in Ramadi to leave their protest camp before security forces move in on the site. He claims the camp is a harbor for al-Qaeda elements. Earlier this year, clashes between government forces and demonstrators kicked off a wave of violence that has yet to taper off. A new offensive can only inflame the situation.
