IRAQ THE MODEL: Rough Days IRAQ THE MODEL: Rough Days

IRAQ THE MODEL: Rough days... describes this ethnic cleansing of Sunnis from a very personal point of view:
My Sunni uncle, his Shia wife and their children were told to leave because the head of the household is Sunni. His voice was filled with pain as he talked to me, I asked him who made the threat and he said ten cars filled with armed men came to our street shooting their guns in the air and announcing through a loudspeaker that all Sunni people must leave within 24 hours, then they went to the mosque and murdered the preacher's son.
I think that it is becoming ever more evident that the claim of a civil war is not really accurate. Rather, it is very clear now that what is going on is that the Shiites are pushing the Sunnis out. Not pretty, but I think that it would be hard to argue that the Sunnis hadn't brought a lot of this on themselves by supporting the foreign jihadists and former Baathists in their indiscriminate murder of Shiites.
