Chaos About To Be Unleashed In Iraq?

The Sunni/Shiite mutual slaughter seems to be on the very edge of slipping full bore into open warfare. If the US and Iraqi officials cannot get a handle on this quickly we could be witnessing the end of any practical hope for a peaceful society of laws in that sad nation. The Administration must be willing to do whatever it takes, be that more or dramatically fewer US troops. The problem will be in discovering the proper combination of American and Iraqi wise men who can discern the correct answer.

As in all such matters, the madmen will be storming the streets with their weapons and the mass of ordinary citizens, hoping only for a safe environment for their families, will suffer the consequences of this indiscriminate violence.
