Iraq peace party against occupation

Unhappy of the typecast in Iraq that if you oppose the presence of foreign armies then you must condone violence against them, a new National Foundation Congress has been established. It unites Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians. The NFC intends to contest the January elections. As it exists on a single issue — expel the infadels — is there any longer-term, cross-cutting (dare I say “cross-community”) future for the NFC?
