    My guess is some of these people got wind of talk of us leaving and don't won't to go down that bloody road. Good for them.

    --also, Iraq's history is as a moderate, secular (as opposed to Islamist) state with a high level of education. It's nice to see the moderates coming out to quell the fires--and also great to see the Sunni leaders re-engaging wtih the gov't process which they boycotted in January.

    Now I feel bad for pronouncing in grave tones that democracy had failed. Being so hopeless is not in my nature. I think this port thing's just giving me a case of the Mondays.
