Not to jinx it, but has anyone else noticed the sudden dearth of IED attacks and suicide bombings in Iraq over the last, say, six or seven days? Am I wrong about this? (The link is just to USA Today's front page, which doesn't tend to ignore such things, and on which I have seen no such news in the last, again, six or seven days. I think.) If I'm right, could this have anything to do with the elections and the Sunnis' apparent decision to work within the system?
