Yes, the coming eloticen will test the resolve of the Sunni. Those who vote will need to be very brave. However, that kind of bravery is what builds a nation, bringing differing people together to fight for their right to live in peace within the borders of their piece of the world’s geography. If the majority of Sunnis don’t vote, you are correct. The outcome will be bad and civil war might be the result. However, I find it implausible that Sunnis will accept allowing the thugs that are now known as insurrgents in Iraq to come back to power. I think the majority of them will bravely go to the polls. Your sense is that the odds favor a no vote attitude from the Sunnis. If you are correct, that response will merely be the result of terrorism, not a real indication of what the Iraqi Sunnis want for their country. But, fear can win out. That is a definite possibility in Iraq at this juncture. I personally do not believe that will happen. I’m no expert and I’ve seen many experts be totally wrong about a lot of things and the Iraqi transition to a democracy does not really depend on opinions of ordinary people like you and I or so-called Middle-East experts. The game isn’t over until the last whistle blows and I’m still very optimistic that good will win in the end and democracy will flower in the Arab world. If it doesn’t then, we all lose but mostly the Iraqis.
Can we assume that what he means by two-state sotloiun is an Arab state and a Kurdish state? I don’t see how the Sunni Arabs would want to belong to a state in which the Shias are an even bigger majority without the Kurds than with them, and I don’t see what the Shias would have to gain by including a hostile population that shows no sign of accepting the rule of a non-Sunni majority. And for the Kurds, as you note, an independent state would be perilous.If a three-state federation doesn’t hold, it would make more sense for the Kurds to join the Shias in a two-state federation. Such a union would probably satisfy Turkey and Iran (and might in fact set an example to both). The Sunni Arabs don’t need Shia Iraq’s oil to survive on their own; in return for peaceful coexistence with their neighbors, they could meet any deficits with subsidies from the Gulf states.
