Not Getting the Message

Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki announced today that he won’t be stopped from seeking a third term.  So efforts to form a government will now go on forever….

Maliki’s short-sighted, non-inclusive rule — pro-Shiite and anti-Sunni — created the conditions for ISIS to grab much of northern and western Iraq.  His refusal to go makes it easier for ISIS to stay.

It’s easy to say we backed the wrong guy all these years, but really, people, they’re all the wrong guy.
