Iraq Votes on Constitution
When Reuters says Iraq is "bloodless" that means the Iraqi constitutional elections were going well. There has been some violence and deaths. U.S., Iraqi, and allied forces have once again created a safe voting environment. Omar at Iraq the Model noticed "that no multinational forces were on the streets and the only sign for their presence was the helicopters that patrolled the skies." That's what a curfew can do. With security in place 10 million people voted including Sunnis. Even if enough Sunnis voted to reject the constitution this is still a great result. In order for Iraq to sustain a liberal regime the public must feel they are part of the process. Sunnis voting is a great sign of progress.
