Iraq: ready to cut the cord…


I don’t think so, Chimpy. Gunmen shot and killed three Sunni Arab members of the committee drafting Iraq’s new constitution as they left a Baghdad restaurant on July 19, police sources said. Drawing Sunni Arabs onto the committee, due to deliver a new constitution by Aug. 15, was the cornerstone of a U.S.-backed strategy of persuading members of the restive minority to resolve problems through peaceful politics. Amid Iraq’s continuing violence, there had been some hope the constitutional committee could quickly yield a document the authorities could begin pitching to the public.(Namir Noor-Eldeen/Reuters)
