Some interesting commentary here.

Belmont Club tends to be a good source for on-the-ground information as well as strategic and tactical analysis on Iraq issues.

(Scroll down for discussion of Michael Moore rewriting George Orwell to suit Moore's ends.)

Regarding lower Sunni turnout; not withstanding the higher rates of intimidation among this group comprising the former ruling elite,
James Taranto makes an excellent point.

Still, let's say the worst happens and a combination of terrorism and boycotts succeeds in keeping all but a few Sunni Arabs away from the polls. Would that really make the election illegitimate? Before you answer, consider a thought experiment: Suppose that, when South Africa held its first postapartheid election in 1994, Afrikaner turnout had been depressed by similar measures. Would that have made the enfranchisement of a long-oppressed majority any less a cause for celebration?
