In Iraq things are going well as always. It seems that democracy needs a little help so the ruling government changes the rules on approving the new constitution. This will pretty much make it impossible for the minority Sunni to block passage of the constitution this month. Which means that Bush can give another speech about freedom on the march. But this will do nothing to stop the insurgency that claimed the lives of five more US troops today. Go team.

UPDATE: After UN objection's Iraq's parliament voted today to reverse these rule changes. So the chance remains that the Sunni's could block the new constitution. Democracy = risk in this case. The American troopers who died yesterday are still dead. Some mistakes can't be corrected.
