Kurds and moderate Shiite factions have united to form a new coalition in Iraq’s parliament. While this prevents the fall of al Maliki’s government, it would seem to continue to exclude even moderate Sunnis. It seems likely that the Kurds and Shiites are continuing to divide up the country and the oil as they see fit. This is being spun in some reports ie Wall Street Journal as making it possible to pass the oil laws which are so important to the US.
There will be no accommodation of the Sunnis, no reversal of deBaathification, no reconciliation with al Sadr, and thus the insurgency will continue. The US military in Iraq has no solution for these issues.
