U.S. raids Iranian consulate in Iraq.

Technically, this is an act of war on the part of the U.S.: cassus belli for Iran. If this doesn't lead to Iran fighting back, it'll at least serve to engender deeper resentment toward the United States and to make bringing some kind of calm in the Middle East all the more difficult.

Hold on to your hats; I have a feeling this ride's going to get even bumpier still...
