Iraq's relentless violence produces numbing statistics: On Monday alone, at least 20 people died in bomb attacks in and around Baghdad, and seven U.S. soldiers were killed in combat. Three experts answer questions about the current conflict in Iraq, and the political, military and regional developments of the last few months.

Guests:

Anne Garrels, NPR Baghdad correspondent

Thomas Ricks, spent five tours in Iraq during the war as military reporter for The Washington Post; author of Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq

George Packer, author of Assassins' Gate: America in Iraq; has covered Iraq for The New Yorker magazine
