NPR's Robert Siegel speaks with Ze'ev Schiff, defense editor for the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz, who gives his military analysis of the war in Iraq. If the United States hopes to avoid besieging Baghdad and a difficult urban battle, it must defeat the Iraqi Republican Guard forces before they enter the city. Schiff believes these forces can be engaged before they take up positions inside Baghdad.
