WTF?!? Iraq's insurgents ‘seek exit strategy'?!?

So says the Financial Times:

Many of Iraq's predominantly Sunni Arab insurgents would lay down their arms and join the political process in exchange for guarantees of their safety and that of their co-religionists, according to a prominent Sunni politician.

Insurgent leaders fear coming out into the open to talk for fear of being targeted by US military or Iraqi security forces' raids, he said.

Duh. Ya think?

Unlike Mr Zarqawi's followers, who are thought to be responsible for the big suicide bomb attacks on Iraqi civilian targets, the other Sunni insurgents are more likely to plant bombs and carry out ambushes against security forces and US troops active near their homes.

Sharif Ali said the success of Iraq's elections dealt the insurgents a demoralising blow, prompting them to consider the need to enter the political process.

So, the elections on Jan. 30th were demoralizing to the insurgents? Gee, I could've sworn that we should've delayed the elections and given the bad guys more time to slaughter our troops and blow up civilians because the situation was unstable. :-
Another reason why a President Feckless Crapweasel would've been a disaster like President No Controlling Legal Authority would've been. Dubya may be a lot of lame things, but the alternatives WERE clearly worse.
