Meanwhile, in Iraq...

More pesky news from Iraq while Washington DC sits back and waits for General Whatshisface to release his super non-partisan report next month (or whenever)-
The main Sunni Arab political bloc quit the Iraqi cabinet on Wednesday, plunging the government into crisis on a day when suicide bombers killed more than 70 people with massive strikes in the capital.

The Sunni Accordance Front said its five cabinet members and Deputy Prime Minister Salam al-Zobaie would resign from Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's government.

"This is probably the most serious political crisis we have faced since the passage of the constitution. If unresolved the implications are grave," the remaining deputy prime minister, Barhim Salih, a Kurd, told Reuters...

Nothing to see here, move along, move along.

I quote this anti-war activist I saw on TV the other day: "We are buying time at a cost of the lives of our soldiers." Oh no wait, that wasn't an anti-war activist... it was current U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, Ryan Crocker. My bad.

Points for honesty at last, I suppose.
