SUNNI SCHISM; SHIITE CRISIS; CONSTITUTIONAL CONSENSUS IN PERIL?

What's one to think after reading this "Fox News" account of the factional struggle raging in Iraq over the adoption of a constitution and its provisions for federalism? Can the Shiites, Sunnis, and Kurds ally together in the formation of a free and democratic Iraq or are we seeing now a scene straight out of "Lawrence of Arabia," in which Arab tribalism and internecine rivalry is grotesquely on display?
