    believe me, if they take these elections as a sign they can start liberating Iran or Syria next, it will be an apalling mistake.

    if they can accelerate the training for Iraqi security forces, maybe having to eat humble pie and finally accept other countries offers of help to do that.

    if they can focus more on reconstruction of Iraq, and the employment of Iraqis, rather than their construction of army bases in Iraq, and their salivating over Iraqi oil.

    big ifs, I know.

    as for the Sunnis, there has been talk of somehow including them in the writing of the constitution, despite the election boycott. I can't say how the exact mechanics of that would work, but it might provide some face-saving for the Sunnis if it's done that way.
