V-I Day?

The Sunnis seem to have voted in favor of the new Iraqi Constitution, and they actually VOTED, despite attempts on their lives by anarchistic Islamofascists and the ridicule of the concept of Iraq as a Democracy by the ever-erroneous international community. The NY Sun notes the significance of merely having the vote:

By voting the Sunnis have tied themselves to the democratic process. A democratic referendum involves a yes or no option. Only in dictatorships like Iraq under Saddam could a referendum only yield one result . . . If the constitution is rejected, democracy will continue. Elections will take place as planned in December, and the new parliament will simply start writing a constitution again. And if it the constitution is passed, the agreement made means amendments can be passed dealing with these concerns.

More steps in the right direction.
