dianavan BS: Sunni-Arab-U.S. coalition forming (70* d) RE: BS: Sunni-Arab-U.S. coalition forming 15 Apr 07

I don't think the media really has their heads around this conflict in the Middle East. Maybe they can't. Maybe they are being blocked. It seems that they are mighty confused. They try to put unrelated facts together to make a story.

Recently I read about the bombing in the Iraqi legislature, the dozens of Shia deaths by a bomb in a Shia dominated town, Sunnis fighting Sunnis and Sunnis fighting al Qaeda. The article then sums it up by saying U.S. forces continue to target Shiite militia. What???

Why target Shiite militia when it is Sunni insurgents and al Qaeda who are doing all the bombing?

Why does Bush want to form a Sunni-Arab-U.S. coalition when it seems that's where most of the opposition to the Iraqi government is coming from?
