    I think they have a better idea of whats going on than we do.


    Dear Dr. Kareem…

    Iraq’s constitution is not worth the paper it is written on. How can you draft a constitution with over two hundred thousands invading foreign troops occupying the country?!

    The United States has pressured the parties involved in the drafting of this worthless piece of paper until it meets there satisfaction.

    The U.S. government wants an American style federal system in Iraq and will not let the indigenous Iraqis decide their own future.

    Where is the freedom the Iraqis have been promised in this unjust invasion for a so called "democracy"?!

    Dear Neoliberal,

    The current ethnic division in Iraq is deepening, and the battle between Iraq’s ethnic groups over power is as bold as the fighting between Iraq’s resistance fighters and the country’s army, led by the United States.

    As the illegal occupation of Iraq lingers on, the antipathy between Iraq’s ethnic groups, which was once tightly controlled by Saddam’s government, grows bolder, with each group struggling to take more powers.

    Let’s have a look at Iraq’s ethnic make-up. Iraq is not purely Arab; the northern part of the country is a Kurdish stronghold. The Kurds are an ethnic group that has its own language. The rest of Iraq is divided between Sunnis in the northern and central portions of the country and the Shiites in the southern portion.

    But this division became less worrying in the 1980s under the Baath party rule, led by the former Iraqi leader.

    Was it better when Saddam controlled everything in the country?

    It goes without saying that the current chaos and disorder in Iraq’s political atmosphere was sparked by the U.S. invasion, and still the U.S. rejects continuous calls, domestically and worldwide, to start reducing its forces in Iraq.

    Now Iraq is struggling to forge a new constitution. This situation reminds me so much of January elections; “Elections under Occupation”.

    A country under occupation is a state with very limited sovereignty, so how can we trust or believe in a constitution that’s presented under the force of occupation and under pressure from the U.S. government, that’s trying to persuade Iraq’s Sunnis to approve terms that will definitely lead to further division of the country?!

    Even if the constitution was approved, this is not evidence of a turn toward stable dominance by a credible Iraqi government.

    Aljazeera? It must be true then.

    By the way, your "Dr. Kareem" didn't even write the reply.

    B-b-but the ethnic and religious tensions already existed previous to the war in Iraq. Disidents do not become insurgents over night, these things take planning, time and of course cash. In other words, civil war was more than likely inevitable.
