ABSTRACT
This article discusses the continuous threat posed by ethnic and religious violence to the future of Iraq, three years after U.S.-led forces invaded its capital, Baghdad, as of March 2006. Only weeks before the third anniversary of the start of the Iraq conflict, tensions between Iraq's Sunni and Shia or Shiite Muslims were so bad, that civil war was feared. Constant arguing among Iraq's three main ethnic and religious groups has made forming a permanent government difficult. INSET: SN Ellen Explains.
