FINALLY, HOPE AS SHIA STRIKE BACK



After a long period of try to appease and woe the Iraqi Sunnis, there are sighns that the Shia are beginnig to strike back. The Iraqi government naturally denies the phenomenon and journalists do a lot of hand wringing about "A Nation Divided." but I believe it is high time that they stopped being such patient victims.

Appeasement did not work. As ususal it merely invited more violence. As long as Sunnis had more to fear from the terrorists than from the authorities, survival mandated that they cooperate with the bombers.

Apparently, bombing a Shia shrine during a religious celebration is as acceptable to good Islamists as killing Jews during a Seder.

Will Iranian Shia Islamists ever care?
