News flash: Matt Lauer and NBC have decided that the Neolithic Age actually began in 10,500 BC, not the standard 10,000 BC. ... Matt Lauer will use his "serious face" to make the announcement.
The most likely outcome in Iraq is an unofficially devolved country with a weak (but pro-US) central government, a prosperous pro-US northern Iraq, a dirt-poor, resourceless Sunni minority run by former regime fascists living in squalor with their Jihad friends, and a more-stable but Iran-influenced southern Iraq. How would these groups ever live together?
They can't, so this is quickly looking like Sunni vs. Shiite round number 786 (for anyone keeping track) and I can't think of a better graveyard for Jihad Johnnies of all stripes. Let's put the ball on the 50 and blow the whistle and head for the beer tent.
