Tensions Are Rising Between The Sunni and Shiites in Iraq

Since we pulled out of Iraq, there has been a return of the same old carnage that we saw in the past. There has recently been bombings that killed 60 people in Baghdad stemming from Islamic sects that want to show their power and it is plain to see that there are violent extremists in Iraq who desire to have their presence felt. The tensions between the Sunnis and Shiites are rising and the prime minister who is a Shiite, Nouri al-Maliki, is being put into a corner of creating an independent Sunni region in Iraq but has recently been quoted as saying it would only serve in “dividing Iraq and to rivers of blood.”
