Who Says Arabs Aren't Ready for Democracy?

Captain Ed caught today’s biggest story:

Iraq’s Arab Sunnis will do a U-turn and join the political process despite their lack of representation in the newly elected national assembly, Sunni leaders said yesterday. …

All three blocs have promised to reach out to the Sunnis, who comprise a fifth of the population but won just a handful of seats because of low turnouts in their areas. This will soon be tested as parties forge alliances and tussle for government posts, including that of prime minister and president.

Secular Sunni leaders yesterday accepted the victors’ invitation to participate, potentially draining support from the insurgency.


Ed’s got analysis and more over at The Captain’s Quarters.
