As I've said before, the "this insurgency sucks, let's try democracy" Sunnis are starting to raise their voices.
Iraq Sunni leader urges Ramadan ceasefire, US talks
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A prominent leader from Iraq's Sunni Arab minority called on Friday for the United States and Iraqi insurgents to cease fire in the holy month of Ramadan as a prelude to direct talks between Americans and the guerrillas.
Saleh al-Mutlak, a secular nationalist who was involved in negotiating a draft constitution, said a coalition of Sunni political groups close to insurgents was ready to promote such a dialogue to end the bloodshed that has ravaged Iraq since 2003.
"The fighting should stop," Mutlak, who represents the National Dialogue movement, told Reuters. "We have fought for two-and-a-half years and the problem is it doesn't work."
"We must find a political solution," he said. A ceasefire during Ramadan, which began this week, "should be a start for direct negotiations between the two sides."
"Everybody is getting tired in Iraq," Mutlak said.
