Strange bedfellows

After Sunday's elections, Shiites will likely control Iraq. The U.S. will likely support them. The Shiites will likely ask the U.S. to keep its army in their country. The U.S. probably will.

Politics makes strange bedfellows.

Meanwhile, Saddam Hussein's supporters -- mostly Sunnis -- continue to use terror and force to maintain a grip on power. They feel it slipping away, but won't go quietly.
