Things In Iraq Are Looking Bett. . .Um, What's This?
Just when Dumbya was putting a smiley face on events in Iraq, the Iraqi political winds began to blow. And look what it's blowing in: the main Sunni party has threatened to pull out of the government altogether next week unless the Maliki government meets a number of its demands. Some samples: purge the Iraqi police of Shiite militia, release of thousands of detainees, investigations into the bombings of Sunni shrines, etc. What are the chances of the demands being met by next week, keeping in mind the legislature is on vacation? The same as Dumbya ever admitting the enormous blunder he made in invading and occupying Iraq: zero.
