A while back The US brokered a truce with Sunni Arab Nationalist Militias (many of them Baathists and former Saddam Hussein supporters). They would be given a green light to kill troublesome Islamic militants if they ceased killing Shiite’s. As part of the deal, these Sunni militiamen would not conduct assaults against Shiite’s or US troops.
