A New Kind of Voting Monitor

The Shiites have some bright ideas on how to turn the Sunni region is a safe and secure voting environment:
Last week, at a meeting of Iraq's major political parties in the Kurdish region, several prominent politicians suggested that the deterioration in security could be halted by deploying militiamen from groups like the Iraqi National Congress, led by the former exile Ahmad Chalabi, and the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq, a powerful Shiite party.
Shiites lording over Sunnis? Pish! Like we would ever consent to this. It would be like sending Kurdish fighters into battle in ethnically sensitive regions of Mosul and Tal Afar. Oh, right...
