Sunni Arab Plans To Subvert Democracy

"Iraq's Sunnis say things never worse," Associated Press, 12 June 2005, http://msnbc.msn.com/id/8194923/ (from Informed Comment).

"Ryan, if you dig into Lightning...," by John Robb, Global Guerrillas, 13 June 2005, http://globalguerrillas.typepad.com/globalguerrillas/2005/06/effects_based_o.html.

Surprisingly, the bloody end of apartheid is unkind to the apartheidistas

Iraq’s Shiite-dominated government has been in power less than two months, and minority Sunni Arabs — the dominant force in the nation’s relentless and bloody insurgency — are struggling to find a place in the country’s future.

Their plan? Collapse the Constitution

But the once-powerful community, at its lowest point since the U.S.-led invasion and ouster of Saddam Hussein, refuses to accept second-class status and believes it still has trump cards to play — chief among them: withholding approval of a new constitution in a fall referendum.

So Sunni tribes attack American and Iraqi soldiers, assassinate Iraqi politicians and religious leaders, and then profit by rejecting the Constitution.

Iraq is in a civil war. The terrorists swim like fish in the Seas of Anbar, Ninevah, and Saladin. Worse, the terrorists may be undefeatable through politics, as their goal is not to win but to throw Iraq into chaos.

if the country continues as a failed state these groups can continue to operate. That is an end in itself. Winning is state failure.

The Iraqi People would win an ethnic civil war. The Sunnis are a small minority.

The Shia and Kurds should strike back. The lakotization of the Iraqi Sunni Arabs should begin.


Hmmm - maybe the "net" was just busy last night.
