    Well, all I know is I keep hearing Bush talk about how we've brought them peace and democracy. So this wholesale slaughter and sectarian violence must just be another liberal media myth.

    skunk, that's a rather unfortunate thread title.

    I don't know, it seems that ethnic cleansing is already taking place. How much more final can that be?

    Not to being picking nits in a horrible situation, but the Sunni and Shiite violence toward each other is violence within one ethnic group. While it may qualify as sectarian religious "cleansing," it isn't "ethnic cleansing" such as we saw in Kosovo or Bosnia.

    Bosnian Muslims tend to look more "European" than their Serbian neighbors and biologically, there is just as much of a chance of Serbs having Ottoman DNA as Bosniaks. (don't mention that to a Serb unless you want an hour long tirade about their "pure" ethnic origins :D ) Albanian Kosovoans are another story having descended from Illyrian tribes. Ethnicity and religious background aren't always clearcut but I agree, what's happening in Iraq is more as you describe it.
