Sunnis Accuse Iraqi Military

NYT reported As the American military pushes the largely Shiite Iraqi security services into a larger role in combating the insurgency, evidence has begun to mount suggesting that the Iraqi forces are carrying out executions in predominantly Sunni neighborhoods.

Now they know what life was like for the Shias when Saddam was in control. The answer is that the Sunnis should abandon the insurrection, and join the Iraqi forces. If the Iraqi forces were a mixture of Kurds, Sunnis, and Shia, they would be very unlikely to target their own people.
Hundreds of accounts of killings and abductions have emerged in recent weeks, most of them brought forward by Sunni civilians, who claim that their relatives have been taken away by Iraqi men in uniform without warrant or explanation. Some Sunni men have been found dead in ditches and fields, with bullet holes in their temples, acid burns on their skin, and holes in their bodies apparently made by electric drills. Many have simply vanished.
