Oedipal Tragedy: Arrogant Bush Junior Creates the Civil War His Very Own Daddy Warned Against, and Even Sistani Cannot Stop It.

I no longer have power to save Iraq from civil war

The most influential moderate Shia leader in Iraq has abandoned attempts to restrain his followers, admitting that there is nothing he can do to prevent the country sliding towards civil war.

Aides say Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani is angry and disappointed that Shias are ignoring his calls for calm and are switching their allegiance in their thousands to more militant groups which promise protection from Sunni violence and revenge for attacks.

"I will not be a political leader any more," he told aides. "I am only happy to receive questions about religious matters."

It is a devastating blow to the remaining hopes for a peaceful solution in Iraq and spells trouble for British forces, who are based in and around the Shia stronghold of Basra.

Thanks a lot, Bubble Boy. Thanks a lot, Preznit Toad-Exploder. Thanks Dirty Dick. Thanks, Rummy. You sure are reaping what you sowed. Too bad it was a crap crop, eh?

Some people, when they discover themselves trapped in an Oedipal tragedy, take self-punitive measures. Will this be happening anytime soon?

Just asking.

We're nothing but armless swimmer's in Iraq now. People have been killed who would not have been killed. Radical Islam has been further radicalized further. We haven't even gotten oil out of this although contractors such as Halliburton and Blackwater have enriched themselves. Blood for hubris indeed. Meanwhile we're effectivenly ignoring genocide in Darfur.
