Let Sunnis Defeat Iraq's Militants

Rafe al-Essawi anf Atheel al-Nujaifi's editorial in today's New York Times doesn't acknowledge the fact that it is too late to reverse the ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) incursion in North Western Iraq without a costly civil war. These two gentlemen obviously believe in the unity of Iraq as delineated by the British after World War I but that artificial goal will be a difficult rallying cry to follow into what is sure to be a vicious religious battle. Prime Minister Maliki is a partisan Shia who systematically broke down the hard won trust of the Sunni's bought at great expense by our troops and treasure during the surge and Sunni's aren't coming back to a unified Iraq again after that betrayal.
