Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007

Iraq makes progress on crucial constitution plan

By Mariam Karouny Tue May 15, 6:00 PM ET

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – An Iraqi committee agreed on Tuesday to send to parliament a plan to reform the constitution, an important step towards implementing national reconciliation laws that Washington says are critical to ending violence.

Once-dominant Sunni Arabs, who make up the backbone of the insurgency, have long demanded changes to a constitution they say concedes too much power to majority Shi’ites and ethnic Kurds, who were persecuted under Saddam Hussein.

U.S. President George W. Bush, under pressure to show tangible progress in the four-year-old war, has piled pressure on Iraqi leaders to agree power-sharing legislation.

Such laws, which include sharing Iraq’s vast oil wealth and ending a ban on former members of Saddam’s party from public office, are particularly aimed at assuaging Sunnis Arabs and bringing them firmly into the U.S.-backed political process.

About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.

    Well Britian thought that was a good idea for India. But look what happened. Now we have pakistan and India and the are constantly fighting over their borders and other Ideals.

    Also one thing most people don’t realize is that almost every shia and sunni have extended family that are of the other ethnic faction. The truth is Shia and Sunni “Citizens” have lived in peace for a long time. The real problem was the problems Sadham created in his attacks on various ethic groups.

    Also the main force fighting for a split in the ocuntry on a ethnic basis is Al Qaeda. They feel that they can create a more unstable region and infighting. Their views are not well founded and well thought out. We can not allow this to happen as it will tear the region apart and expand the war and number of combatants.

    I don’t know how well that plan has been thought out. It would seem that the plan is just pointing out ethnic differences to me. Isn’t the point to undo what Sadaam did? He created alot of the ethnic views there. I just don’t see how saying “ok one Sunni and one Shi’ite over here” is going to help. Why not “ok 2 Iraqis over here”? I realize it will take a long time to change the way these people view each other after Sadaam, but it has to start somewhere.
