Whoa! This is not the kind of political progress the US is looking for!

Here is a disturbing turn of events:

"Shia, Kurdish Parties Form Political Alliance; New Coalition Creates Governing Majority That Excludes Sunnis"

One of the new coalition's goals, according to Prime Minister Maliki, "would be to address charges that his government is biased against Sunnis, which could prove a difficult task as the new governing coalition doesn't include any Sunnis."

Well, let's hope the new alliance is just more horse trading, but the Sunnis had better stop folding their arms at Maliki's government.

Next week should be an interesting one for Iraqi politics. I wonder how Allawi is taking the new coalition.
