Another Step on the Road to Success

Posted by Gerald on June 30, 2007

Even as the President continues to plead for patience with the surge in the face of the defections of Voinovich and Lugar, we get this piece of news from Iraq.  The Sunni bloc is withdrawing from participation in the cabinet.

This demonstrates clearly that no amount of US military force is going to create the situation that might lead to stability in Iraq.  This isn’t a situation where political violence is getting in the way of civil society, this is a situation where intense divisions are leading to violence.

WE CANNOT FIX THIS PROBLEM.

The only people who can decide that Iraq is to be a stable multi-religious and multi-ethnic society are the Iraqis themselves.  The desire for peace and stability are not enough.  People need to be willing to live and work with different types of people, or nothing works at all.
