Iraq war three
 n.— «We won’t see the gruesome effects of this until long after we’ve pulled out, when it may produce a dictator considerably worse than Saddam. Within the military community there is a worrying new phrase: “Iraq war three.” We might have to go back in another 10 years or so to depose the new Saddam. The difference is that next time round he’ll probably have a nuclear Iran backing him up.» —“Letters: Many battles still to come over Iraq” by Steven McLaughlin Guardian (United Kingdom) Apr. 20, 2007.
