The State of the Insurgency 14.7.2005


This document discusses the largely restrained threat faced by the coalition from Shia extremists. However, this paper does discuss the influence of Iran upon these Shia extremist groups and the threat this poses. However, this source is useful to scholars because it demonstrates that despite a common enemy in the coalition, Shia and Sunni insurgents are not sufficiently motivated to unite to oppose the coalition together.
