Purple Finger - who knows what it will mean in the long run?

Naomi Klein has an interesting reality check Nation column for us. As much as I'm disgusted by the Bushocon's arrogance in the whole matter, I recognize that we really have to hope for the best in Iraq. I also do think that the election results make things very tricky. How the heck do we avoid a timetable? Hey I know a lot of folks wish there was a timetable, so maybe one would not be such a bad thing. I just don't see what's going to hold Iraq together when we leave. I pray that all the triumphalist nonsense about a shining example of democracy in the mideast comes true, but I ain't countin' on it.
