Meanwhile, in Iraq...

This is not exactly what we call we good news-
Five Iraqi MPs have announced a boycott of cabinet meetings, deepening the political crisis and leaving the unity government without any Sunni members.

The ministers, who are loyal to former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, blamed what they said was the Shia-led government's failure to end sectarian favouritism...

...So far this year, 17 government ministers - nearly half of the cabinet - have either suspended their participation or quit.

You know what this political crisis needs? More troops!!! Indefinite military occupation! {*waits patiently for Jesus Petraeus to put Humpty Dumpty together again*}

In all seriousness, I feel pity for those who think more time, money, and bodies will fix this.
