"BAGHDAD, Sept. 7 — Voter registration soared in some Sunni Arab parts of Iraq as Sunnis mobilized to try to vote down a draft constitution they believe will divide the country, according to figures released Wednesday at the close of registration for the Oct. 15 referendum."
The Sunni Arabs of Iraq are going to try to turn out enough voters to defeat the draft constitution. No one knows if they will find enough people to be able to do that.
In a way it does not matter.
Not difficult to see.
Many Sunni Arabs do not want a constitution which relegates them to the status of a "tolerated" minority," deprived of a "fair" share of "national" wealh. They do not see this draft document as a desirable outcome.
Many Sunni Arabs support some part of the insurgencies, either actively or passively.
1-Therefore if the constitution is enacted many Sunni Arabs will continue to support the insurgencies.
2-Therefore, if the constitution is not enacted many Sunni Arabs will continue to support the insurgencies.
i.e., the war will go on either way. What part of this do we not get?
