    Iran-Iraq War II
    This is close to the nightmare scenario. The Shiite-Sunni civil war in Iraq becomes the pretext for Iranian intervention. With Syria in the North keeping Hezzbolah as a player in Lebanon, which will occupy Israel and UN forces. The US will not only get bogged down in Iraq, it will be impossible to leave with Iran skirmishing at the border. This will allow the Kurds to formally declare independence in the north, pissing off Turkey.

    Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld are making mistakes greater than Chamberlain ever did. All Chamberlain did was allow Germany more time to do the inevitable. This Iraq campaign was never inevitable, nor was the Sunni-Shiite War inevitable.

    I have come to agreement that this policy is fugged. We should have negotiated freedom for the Kurds with Hussein in power, then gave him enough shit to wipe Iran out if it got cross-eyed.

    I would not be shocked if Iran actually invaded Iraq with American forces still in it. The only thing that would slow them down is our air power. A U.S. "preemptive" air strike on Iran would certainly bring about such a reaction. (An airstrike is all we could do with the troop levels we have.)
