Iraqi protesters call for unity government
Ideally yes, but it’s about as likely as the Ulster Defence Association and the Provos having a coalition government

So let’s see: Hussein’s secular government (which had nothing to do with 9/11 and under which one could have a drink, be Catholic and if a woman have rights) violently suppressed the theocratic Shi’ites (remember when the Ayatollah in neighbouring Iran was America’s Public Enemy No. 1... and Hussein was the good guy, shaking hands with Donald Rumsfeld and buying WMDs from the US?) and now that he’s out of power it’s payback time against the Sunnis. Meanwhile the Sunni insurgents understandably want to get the American invaders out of their country.

Coming up: eventual Iraqisation, followed by a re-enactment of 1975 Saigon and 1979 Teheran all at once. (Will there be a Miss Baghdad Broadway show?)
