Shia And Kurds By-Pass Sunnis On Constitution

More bad news for the Bush administration on Iraq. The Associated Press reports:

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- Iraqi negotiators finished the country's new constitution Sunday without the endorsement of Sunni Arabs who helped prepare it, dealing a blow to the Bush administration and setting the stage for a bitter campaign leading up to an October referendum.

Several of the 15 members on the Sunni panel said they rejected the document because of disagreements over such issues as federalism, Iraq's identity and references to Saddam Hussein's Sunni-dominated Baath party.

Sunni Arab negotiators later said in a joint statement that they had asked the United Nations and Arab League to intervene.

Gee, I wonder how the Bushies will spin this blow as a victory on the Sunday talk shows this morning?

What time does the civil war start again?

And just how horrifically godawful and bloody is it going to be?

Where can I to learn abt it in detail?
