An AP story via Yahoo News. This, if it were not so unspeakable, would be highly ironic: the US invades and occupies Iraq, ostensibly because, among other spurious reasons, they harbour al-Qaeda type terrorists. After months of occupation, a civil war looms between the majority Shi'ites of Iraq and al-Qaeda type extremist Sunnis. Alternative scenario, if Iraq somehow evades civil war (no thanks to the American occupation) they will elect to have an Iranian style Shi'ite theocracy and then what? Will the US invade again? And what happens to the Kurds this time, used and discarded by the US once more? This is so insane.
