Most of the recent bombings in Iraq have targeted Shiites, and al-Qaeda in Iraq has claimed responsibility. The ones today in Mahmudiya, however, targeted Sunni.
Who were the perpetators? Will this be a one-off deal? Or is this an example of local Iraqi Shiites sending a warning to Sunnis who might be feeling restive with coming Sunni ascendancy in Syria as Assad's Alawi-based regime is inexorably pushed out?
