War on Ira*

Lots of interesting stuff in this AP Article titled "Iraq's Shiite leaders grilled by U.S. on nature of Iran ties." But this paragraph jumped out at me:
In recent talks, U.S. diplomats have bluntly asked the leaders how a Shiite-dominated government would react if Iran came under attack by an outside power because of its suspected nuclear weapons program, according to a high-ranking member of one Shiite party.

That sure sounds like war with Iran is almost a done deal.

The article's focus on how close the Shiite government will be to Iran is very insteresting, too. I wonder how many Iraqi politicians who will be killed in the coming months and years will die not at the hands of the insurgency?
