This is indeed very worrying. The upcoming election will indeed be highly imperfect. There really isn't any doubt that it will be viewed by some percentage of Iraqis as illegitimate, and some percentage of the world as illegitimate. The only question is how high those percentages will be. I wonder what backup plans the US has for the election.
Instead of boycotting the election, perhaps the Sunnis could enlist the assistance of some American celebrities. Given the Sunnis' unique skill set, and with P. Diddy's help, it seems like they could organize a "Vote or Die" effort with some real teeth to it.
Comparing the upcoming Iraqi elections with the U.S. elections is not a good idea. I know you're not being serious, but the potential illegitimacy of the election resulting from a Sunni boycott is.
The legitimacy of an election where 100,000 electors have just been wiped out is somewhat questionable, to my mind....
