Iraq in a nutshell

Do you have trouble telling who's on which team? Maybe it's because you're old and can remember when Osama Bin Laden and Saddham Hussein were American allies. But Atrios can help you understand some of the more recent player trades.
Short version of the story: We toppled minority Sunni leadership of Iraq, installing majority Shia leadership in power. Now, according to Hersh, we're funding Sunni interests elsewhere in the region to prevent the rise of Shia dominance.

Thanks wise old men of Washington, for putting the grownups back in charge.
Is that clear?
