Sunni revolt against al-Qaida spreads

See there's only so much killing of their own people that the Sunni's will tolerate. Seems their limit is around 600,000.

An al-Qaida-linked suicide bomber struck a safehouse occupied by an insurgent group that has turned against the terror network. Friday's attack northeast of Baghdad killed two other militants, police said, the latest sign that an internal Sunni power struggle is spreading.

Insurgents killing insurgents? Well, I, I'm...ah...I'm just so happy.

"Al-Qaida fighters and leaders have completely destroyed Amariyah," said Abu Ahmed, a 40-year-old Sunni father of four who said he joined in the clashes. "No one can venture out, and all the businesses are closed. They kill everyone who criticizes them and is against their acts even if they are Sunnis."

It took you awhile but welcome back to our planet. Now, if you'll join the rest of us in trying to bring some sort of, I don't know, CIVILITY to that reason over there it would be appreciated.

Other residents, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared retribution, said the clashes began after al-Qaida militants abducted and tortured Sunnis from the area. That prompted a large number of residents, including many members of the rival Islamic Army armed with guns and rocket-propelled grenades, to rise up against the terror network. U.S. forces joined them in the fighting Wednesday and Thursday.

You know, one really good placed missile could end a lot of this nonsense. Not that I'm promoting violence I just, well, yea, I guess I am. Fuck it.
