insurgency splits

Iraqi insurgents urge Sunnis to vote, warn Zarqawi
Saddam Hussein loyalists who violently opposed January elections have made an about-face as Thursday's polls near, urging fellow Sunni Arabs to vote and warning al Qaeda militants not to attack.
In a move unthinkable in the bloody run-up to the last election, guerrillas in the western insurgent heartland of Anbar province say they are even prepared to protect voting stations from fighters loyal to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, leader of al Qaeda in Iraq.
Well, isn't that special? The Ba'athists have officially denounced the Islamofascists and are formally participating in this week's parlaimentary elections. I bet Zarqawi is cutting random people's heads off in frustration. We can only hope that those people are his underlings.
Now what was it that all the "peace" loons were saying? "Those silly little brown people over there can't handle democracy. They've never had it, so they wouldn't know what to do with it." Right? Well it seems to me that democracy has now officially converted terrorists into citizens. So much for another Vietnam, eh?

How are they a "bunch of wackos" if they are putting down their RPGs and voting? While I appreciate comments, please leave your unthinking racism in your head. It'll be much more comfortable there where it has plenty of room to move around.
