A key moment in Iraq

The Iraqi government has begun to take control of the US bought Sunni militias in Iraq. This is a big deal because the Shia government has shown interest in castrating these groups and the Sunnis have threatened to go back to insurgency.

So I guess it's no surprise that Sunni insurgents are trying to widen the gap by bombing outside two Baghdad Shia mosques, killing at least 17.
