Let's See The MSM Report This

Here's something you won't see on the News:
Iraqi insurgents urge Sunnis to vote, warn Zarqawi

FALLUJA/RAMADI Iraq (Reuters) - Saddam Hussein loyalists who violently opposed January elections have made an about-face as Thursday's polls near, urging fellow Sunni Arabs to vote and warning al Qaeda militants not to attack.

In a move unthinkable in the bloody run-up to the last election, guerrillas in the western insurgent heartland of Anbar province say they are even prepared to protect voting stations from fighters loyal to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, leader of al Qaeda in Iraq.

There is now a growing longing for control and order in Iraq. I guess the Sunni's learned that if you want political power in a democracy, you actually have to vote. This came after Sunni's were horribly beaten in the first elections in January, when they boycotted the voting, and threatened to kill anyone who voted. This time the story is just the opposite.
