Do Today's Bombings in Iraq Portend New Civil War?

As reported by AP via Time on-line.

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?
