Thanks to Gateway Pundit for pointing out in this welcome post that there are signs of Iraqis responding to the attack on the Al-Askariya Mosque with unity and not bloodshed.
Don't throw in the towel, folks. If they can get through this the "impeding civil war" will be seen as something that is occurring primarily in the minds of the media. Always good to put a sharp stick in the eye of those folks, not to mention far better for the Iraqis and for our long-term goals for the region. There's little that peeves Al Qaeda more than Sunnis and Shi'ites demonstrating brotherhood in Islam, and whatever frustrates AQ is most likely good for the rest of us.
