    Here, let me check.

    I guess I did.

    Without representation in the "Government" the Sunni's will only resort to more chaotic and violent acts.

    Which can ony result in more deaths, and more violence in retaliation, which will result in more deaths.

    Which I can only assume, will be labeled a civil war.

    It should be fun to watch, especially with the US arming them.

    Oh its been going on for a loong while.

    This is the beautiful part, without proper 'Democratic representation', the actions of the Sunni's can officially be construed as the beginning of "Civil War."

    Which is none the the business of th US. We're just there to rebuild and stick straws in the ground.

    For the record. it was never fun.

    I thought the surge was working, and what about the article from two libs, in the new york times, who are huge critics of bush, and part of the brookings institure?
