Col. Lang,

1. How much help from Iran did Shi'a Iraq need at the ballot box? My understanding is with the majority and the Sunnis staying home they walked to their victories.

2. I didn't know Sistani was Persian. Still, do you doubt the media portrayal of him as an open minded leader with Shi'a religious motivations but Iraqi national motivations?

3. Which country (Lebanon?) do you mean when you speak of Iran being "on the threshold of controlling vast oil resources that stretch from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean." I wasn't aware of any Med. country (except the N. Africans) with sizeable oil reserves.

4. You make a compelling case. Still, I wonder which of Davis' points you disagree with.
