Iraqis stand down

While we're on the subject of the Iraqis' disinterest, unwillingness or inability to forge a nation, there comes word that the largest Sunni bloc in the Iraqi parliament has quit the government.

This comes as the parliament begins a one-month recess. (Anti-war forces in the US have made much of the lengthy recess--you'll recall that it was originally supposed to be two months. I never thought the matter all that important; it's not like they were actually doing anything while the parliament was in session, right?)
