IntraShia violence

Iraqslogger has some bits on intraShia violence in the south today. Shia tribal violence broke out in Basra as retribution for a killing. The targets were the Dawa and SIIC political offices.

A long piece on the economic underpinnings of the Shia conflicts, and, (bottom half) a cryptic look at the series of assassinations targeting Sistani's apparatus. The allegation is that the killings are reprisals for the US led "Soldiers of Heaven" bloodbath many months ago.
