Let's not forget that Iraq isn't the only Middle Eastern country in danger of transforming into a virulently anti-American theocracy.

As much as the upside for Bush's thing-that-gets-laughingly-referred-to-as-a-policy in Iraq was all wonderfulness and rose petals and sunshine and dominos, the potential downside is equally horrific -- the destabilization of the entire region, not just Iraq itself.

Neither outcome is likely, of course -- reality usually finds a middle ground -- but the downside is a lot closer to fruition than the upside right now.
