Iraq's draft constitution is adopted by Iraqi voters, officials say

BAGHDAD, Iraq - (AP) Iraq's landmark constitutional was adopted
by a majority of voters during the country's Oct. 15 referendum, election
officials said Tuesday.
Results released by the Independent Electoral Commission of Iraq
showed that Sunni Arabs, who had sharply opposed the draft document, failed
to produce the three-quarters "no" vote they would have needed in at least
three of Iraq's 16 provinces to defeat it.
The commission, which had been auditing the referendum results for
10 days, said at a news conference in Baghdad that Ninevah province, had
produced a "no" vote of only 55 percent. Only two other mostly Sunni Arab
provinces _ Salahuddin and Anbar _ had voted no by two-thirds or more.
The constitution, which many Kurds and majority Shiites strongly
support, is considered another major step in the country's democratic
transformation, clearing the way for the election of a new Iraqi parliament
on Dec. 15. Such steps are considered important in any decision about the
future withdrawal of U.S.-led forces from Iraq.

ah yes, now where do we go from here. To get an idea of what is going on, one must shed American and European media sources and give into the world of the Middle East's CNN...aljazeera

Quote:
A democratically elected Iraqi parliament will be held aloft as proof of President George Bush's success in rebuilding Iraq.

It will also give the green light for America to begin a significant troop withdrawal regardless of the actual security situation on the ground.

The insurgency and budding civil war will soon be viewed as Iraq's internal problem, and the violent fate unleashed upon the long-suffering Iraqi people will no longer be America's responsibility. ("Hey, we gave them a constitution and freedom!") But I digress.
