Give me Theocracy, or give me death!

That seems to be the Sunnis' battle cry. Aljazeera reported today that Shia negotiator Jawad al-Maliki said they and the Kurds had an agreement on the constitution but "There is still one point left and the meeting now is about it: It is the Sunni Arab brothers and their stance towards federalism." But we already knew that.

Then Reuters reported that Kurds had complained that U.S. diplomats, who have insisted that women and minorities should enjoy equal rights, had conceded ground to the Islamists in order to meet Monday's deadline for passing a draft constitution in the legislature. We already knew that too.

Now MSNBC is reporting that they are giving themselves 3 more days to hash it out. Al-Mutlaq told The Associated Press "There is still no agreement and if they want to hand the draft today they will be violating the law."

Iraqi law sure is confusing, I think they just make it up as they go along.(snark)
