Iraq vote recount: No change

That the now concluded recount of votes cast in the Baghdad area has produced no major change truly ends nothing in re the continuing post-election crisis.  Ayad Allawi's Iraqiya party, which drew tremendous support from Iraq's previously dominant minority - the Sunni Arabs -  won the most votes, but the two largest Shii blocs (one of them headed by the current prime minister, Nuri al-Maliki) have ganged up against Iraqiya and will likely form the next government, which will ensure Shii dominance.

Mr. Allawi - and think-tanker Kenneth Pollack, one of the cheerleaders-in-chief for the idiotic invasion of Iraq - now says that there is a real danger of civil war.
