There's a "burning fuse" in Iraq

"A burning fuse in Iraq that so far can’t be extinguished"

"Meanwhile, back in Iraq, things are getting downright dicey. The Sunni-Shiite feud that once lay dormant has been reignited after a government panel barred more than 500 candidates, many of them Sunni, from the ballot in the March 7 elections. The Sunnis see that move as an effort to deny them a voice in government, and there is every reason to believe they are right. Secular Shiites who might draw votes from religious-based Shiite parties are also among those banned." --Jay Bookman

Burning fuse? Ya think they would bomb Iraqi markets, government buildings and ISF if they're denied a voice in government? They wouldn't do that, would they?
