Dujail Theats

A massacre committed in the Shi'ite village of Dujail was a key component of Saddam Hussein's trial. After sentence was pronounced November 5, Sunnis in the area began targeting Dujail residents as a means of gaining retribution. The article stays focused on that area, but it wouldn't surprise me of the Saddam verdict has been a driving force in the upsurge of violence in Iraq in recent weeks, perhaps fueling the anger of former Ba'athists as much as the February 2006 destruction of the Askariyya Shrine did Shi'ites.
