No Support in the Region

From Holden:

It’s hard to imagine that Iraq’s draft constitution can be successful without the backing of the Arab League.

In an interview with the BBC, the secretary-general of the Arab League, Amr Moussa, said, “I do not believe in this division between Shiite and Sunni and Muslims and Christians and Arabs and Kurds. … I don’t buy this and I find in this a true recipe for chaos and perhaps a catastrophe in Iraq and around it.”

The only non-Iraqi’s who have voiced support for the draft constitution other than Chimpy are the Iranians. Are we setting up a situation in Iraq where the Iranians are backing the Iraqi Shiites while the Arab world support the Sunnis? Will the Turks tolerate an autonomous Kurdistan on their border? It hardly seems like the road to peace winds through this constitution.
