Iraq Takes a Step Forward

#1
Iraq's Governing Council signed a landmark interim constitution after council members unanimously approved it Monday with a show of hands.

Council President Mohammed Bahr al-Ulloum (search) called the signing a "historic moment, decisive in the history of Iraq."

The interim constitution is a key step in U.S. plans to hand over power to Iraqis by July 1.

"There is no doubt that this document will strengthen Iraqi unity in a way never seen before," said Massoud Barzani, a Kurdish leader on the council. "This is the first time that we Kurds feel that we are citizens of Iraq."

Especially since it identifies you to those who won't like you very much afterwards.

at least it stops those who have been thieves (hand cut off etc) and will also introduce them to the french method of voting with both hands in the air.
