    Sign of Hope in Iraq

    from an article in today's Post:

    The demonstration by at least 5,000 people in Basra, the country's second largest city, was organized by the Supreme Council of Islamic Revolution in Iraq and the Shiite Dawa Party. It was larger than the rallies Sunni Arabs have staged against the constitution recent weeks.

    The rally was sponsored by two major Shiite parties whose representatives played a key role in drafting the new charter.

    The two parties are the largest Shiite political groupings in Iraq, and their representatives played a key role in drafting the new charter.

    Demonstrators chanted "Yes to the constitution!" and carried banners that said: "The constitution is a guarantee for better future," and "Freedom and justice will be achieved by this constitution."

    -------------------------

    yes, there still are bad things happening, but the 3 main factions are still discussing like civilized people. a simple request: if you can, try not to piss on the parade. thanks.
