Shiite hits the fanatics

A day after I posted my Iraq rant, the Los Angeles Times came out with an article about how the Shiite led Iraqi government is seeking to disband the CLCs of Sunni fighters.

Sons of Iraq under arrest, sent into hiding
The article concludes...
If disbanded, their leaders warn, the groups could revolt."In the event that the U.S. military and government don't live up to their promises, it could turn back to a violent form of resistance," said Abu Abed, a leader Adhamiya. "Every action breeds a reaction."

Of course, if you find the whole Shiite/Sunni division confusing, don't feel bad.
