‘The jihad now is against the Shias, not the Americans’ | Iraq | Guardian Unlimited – from the point of view of the now besieged Sunni Baghdad neighbourhoods it is Shiite forces of the Government that are now the targets of Jihad. These were the dispossessed – who used to be in power under Saddam.
The executions of Sunni Muslims are being carried out by Shiite death squads – are these Government sponsored? Shiite militia are murdering dozens of Sunni each day and the Sunni fight back with guns. Will the surge in US forces to battle the Shiite – going to battle the Shiite government forces?
There is corruption in the American installed army – soldiers can sell Government munitions to the Sunni street militia and become wealthy.
