The tunes, they are a-changin'.

George W. Bush: a legacy of spreading democracy….well, um….autocracy, but with security….uh….military strongmen?

As those of us here in the reality-based community have known for 5 or 6 years, power and authority in Iraq are going to come down to whichever genocidal ethnic militia seems to have the largest proportion of the populace behind it. Those in the minority, well….devil take the hindmost, I suppose.

If it's any consolation to those who are about to lose the ethnic power struggle in Iraq, the minority in a democracy routinely gets bent over the barrel as well. You're not missing anything.
