Iraq's post-election analysis

Iraqi voters went to the polls last week with no illusions regarding the impact results will bring to their life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, all of which are in short supply in the country formerly known as Mesopotamia. The low turnout was a self-fulfilling prophecy. Not much will change in the new Parliament, and coalition negotiations seem sure to drag-on for many weeks. But regardless of the make-up of the next government, one feature does suggest itself. Most Iraqis, while arguing about everything else, have had enough of foreign involvement in their affairs. Whether it is the Iranians or the Americans, Iraq wishes to handle its affairs on its own. Is it really the case, and if so what are the implications for Washington, Tehran and Jerusalem?
