Is this a case of US appeasement?

24 Killed in Iraq Attacks

Skip the headline and find this paragraph:

FOX News said:
Failure to establish a unity government that includes a strong role for Sunni Arabs would fail to undermine the Sunni-dominated insurgency and throw into question U.S. plans for a phased withdrawal of the 138,000 American troops here.
The double use of 'fail' puzzles me a little. However, do I understand this correctly? The US 'demands' that the Shia/Kurd elected majority accept a "strong role" in Government for the Sunnis - otherwise the insurgency will continue unabated and US troops won't be home for Christmas.

'We want less attacks. We want our troops home. Give them "a strong role" in government.'

Isn't this appeasement?
