What is the possibility of a civil war in Iraq if this election is held in January 05? Have you heard any of our wonderful journalist talk about this, no---well I'll be damned! Bush wants the election in January because it shows he has won. Liberals who have been saying since Bush went into Iraq that he can not win this war; will watch in horror as Bush cuts and runs leaving the Iraqi people in a mess. He will blame the Iraqis for screwing everything up, that what this shithead does, blame others for his fuck ups. Here is the final turn in this race, the Shia have 60% of the vote and they want the election now, but will wait until January. The Sunni can't get out of their houses to campaign or to vote and only have about 20% of the population and know they are going to lose big time. The Kurds are having a wonderful time in the north, they are building, creating a society and will not let the Shia tell them what to do, ever. This my friends is called an old Irish stew and it will boil over and burn everybody in the area. 2005 in going to be a wonderful year.
Sunnis warn of civil war over timing of election
THE largest Sunni party in Iraq gave warning yesterday of civil war unless the January 30 elections are delayed to allow it to compete on equal terms.
From Stephen Farrell in Baghdad
12/02/04 "The Times" -- The Iraqi Islamic Party said that the once-powerful Sunni minority could turn against fellow Iraqis if they are left with little stake in a future National Assembly dominated by Shias and Kurds. The warning came as Sheikh Ghazi al-Yawer, the Sunni interim president, admitted that calls for a postponement were causing a growing rift between the communities, although he played down the threat of violence.
But Yousef Ghadban, technical director of the Iraqi Islamic Party, which recently withdrew from the government in protest at the US-led assault on Fallujah, said that internecine violence was a very real prospect unless electoral commissioners delayed the poll for six months.
He said that death threats against candidates and continuing violence in the Sunni Triangle had made it impossible for his and other Sunni parties to match the Shias' and Kurds' progress in registering and canvassing supporters. He said: "Many experts have warned of a civil war after the elections, and certainly this could happen in Iraq."
