    Iraq's insurgents ‘seek exit strategy'

    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.


    Sharif Ali Bin al-Hussein, who heads Iraq's main monarchist movement and is in contact with guerrilla leaders, said many insurgents including former officials of the ruling Ba'ath party, army officers, and Islamists have been searching for a way to end their campaign against US troops and Iraqi government forces since the January 30 election.

    “Firstly, they want to ensure their own security,” says Sharif Ali, who last week hosted a pan-Sunni conference attended by tribal sheikhs and other local leaders speaking on behalf of the insurgents.

    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.

    Sharif Ali distinguishes many Sunni insurgents, whom he says took up arms in reaction to the invasive raids in search of Ba'athist leaders and other “humiliations” soon after the 2003 war, from the radical jihadist branch associated with Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

    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.

          mmm, not really sure if I believe this. But I hope that is happening.

            The declining death toll on American soldiers is evident enough. I hope it stays that way.

              I think the Insurgents are just getting tired and sick of the fact that there bold attacks are not only being trivialized by major news networks, but it doesn't seem to be convincing soldiers to leave.

                They have already been offered some amnesty from the Iraqi Government. I honestly think the insurgents are acting fairly independently, and that there is not one person or group controlling them all. So, I have doubts about this amnesty deal, but I am glad the Sunni leaders are becoming more involved in Iraq's Government. I honestly think that with such a great success of Iraq's Election, the insurgents know that the Iraqi people want a free Government to take place in there country.
