"The American media continues to tout the reduced violence in Iraq without foreseeing the long-term potential for a resumption of severe ethno-sectarian violence and the absence of mechanisms — a la Sudan — to defuse it. The lull in Iraqi mayhem was mainly achieved by the U.S. bribery of Iraqi Sunni tribes (the 'Awakening') to fight against their foreign-led Sunni brethren from al-Qaeda." (01/12/11)
