Iraq - Nope, No Civil War Here
This is one of those horrific moments where I get to say,
"I told you so" and then immediately feel bad about it.
It's getting bloodier. 138 Sunni's dead in reprisals; Many mosques in the Sunni Triangle, attacked; The Sunni have suspended talks with the Shiite and Kurds, the goal of which would have been a unification government.
I give it two months before the Kurds break off and seal their borders.
And BTW...go and read Robot Buddha's excellent post on the subject.
The thing that I find most tragic is that, as Windspike points out, they're destroying their own history to incite this war, and if it really is the Sunnis, they're signing their own death warrants.
O'Hara's Appointment indeed.
Looks like the MSM is finally going to report that Iraq is in a civil war. About time.
I'll need a couple of partners and a cool, but nondescript, name like "DevCon Global Industries." So, who's with me?
That region will never be calm..any country that is ruled by religion will always be a mess..
