Iraq - Terrorism Backfiring?

Amir Taheri thinks so.

Are the insurgents and their terrorist allies in the Sunni Triangle doing Iraq a favor without knowing it?

The question is not fanciful. The violence unleashed by the insurgency has concentrated most minds on a single issue: Security. It has brought together communities and political parties that would otherwise be fighting one another over faith, ideology, and economic interest.

In the current election campaign Communists, monarchists, and Islamists often find themselves on the same side when it comes to defeating the insurgents and ridding Iraq of terrorism.
