An Iraqi Hitler?

The London Times reports that Iraq's interim President worries that "an Iraqi Hitler" may emerge if things continue in the current vein in Iraq:
Mr Yawar said that the continuing instability and violence presented a long-term threat to the prospects for democracy in Iraq, where nationwide elections are scheduled for January 30. "This could in the long term create an environment in which an Iraqi Hitler could emerge like the one created by the defeat of Germany and the humiliation of Germans in World War I," he told the London-based Asharq al-Awsat newspaper in remarks published today.
In other words, it's not Germany 1945 that the U.S. is recreating, but rather Germany 1918. Mission Accomplished!

I'm going to the store now to buy some popcorn to eat while I watch my favorite rightwing contortionists try to spin this one to indicate that things are actually going in the right direction over there.
