Is there any hope in try­ing to stop sec­tar­ian bat­tle in Iraq?

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Martin Allen,

Wed­nes­day’s po­lit­i­cal car­toon by Steve Sack of the Star Tri­bune ac­cu­rately de­picts the thou­sand-year-old sec­tar­ian bat­tle be­tween the Shi­ites and Sunni Mus­lims. Con­sider two ra­bid dogs fight­ing and a good Sa­mar­i­tan (e.g., the United States) at­tempts to beak up the dog fight and then both dogs start bit­ing the hand of the Sa­mar­i­tan.

Maybe it’s best not to be a good Sa­mar­i­tan — let dog eat dog.
