Onward toward democracy!!
If you think everything in Iraq is going just plain swell:
Baghdad -- A coalition of more than 60 political parties threatened Thursday to boycott Iraq's new parliament and warned of a surge in violence if new elections were not held throughout the country.
The group, led by top Sunni Arab parties and the secular coalition led by former interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, issued a statement denouncing last Thursday's election as fraudulent and listing demands they said must be met before they would participate in the new legislature.
