Pinkerton is wrong. When Phalangist militia members massacred Palestinians in Israeli-occupied Beirut in 1982, the Israeli government accepted responsibility for looking the other way while it was happening. The same thing will happen to the US - it might take a long time for this administration to admit responsibility, but it's inevitable.

And while the Sunnis make up only 20% of the Iraqi population, our Arab allies are Sunni and will see our credibility in bringing democracy to the Middle East tied to how we look after this minority. We can't let a massacre of Sunnis happen and pretend it won't be noticed by the Saudis, Kuwaitis, and Egyptians.
