Looks like our government, in its infinite stupidity, has enabled Maliki to disenfranchise his own people and become more of a dictator than an elected leader. This is not Iraq “tipping back” into sectarianism since our troops left – it has been rife with sectarianism for decades and now the Sunnis and others are fighting for equality in a Shi’ite Islamic country.

Will we stay out of this mess? If Maliki asks for our help in putting down the Sunnis and Kurds, will our government go back into Iraq with troops? Maliki is one of the “chosen” by our own government, so that just might happen.
