Sunni-Shiite Divide in Baghdad Worsens

Aljazeera English reports on the increased Sunni-Shiite divide in Baghdad. The video of blast walls and closed bridges is worth the price of admission. My only puzzlement is why they did not say more about the ethnic cleansing of the Sunnis from Iraq, such that the city is now overwhelmingly Shiite.

Also, for those of you who like watching video on the web, check out my extended conversation with Dan Drezner on Iraq last week at bloggingheads.tv.
