Great Summary Of Who's On Who's Side

mrvetinari has a lovely thread Something Useful to know about Iraq where he lets out the really cool secret:
If a body is beheaded, it was likely the work of Sunni Salafiyist/Wahabist Militias (Al Tawhid Al Jihad, Ansar Al-Sunnah, The group that calls itself "Al-Qaeda-of-Iraq" but is really not affiliated with the real Al Qaeda and is just using the name, etc..). They view decapitation as the proper punishment for Apostacy. These groups also have less quams about killing people usually deemed non-combatants (Children, Women, The Elderly, Etc..)
Just plain old shot-by-firing-squad is often the work of the Kurdish Peshmerga, who are a more professional sectarian militia, and don't have time for theological discussions of how to kill and maim.
Ok, so I had to crank on the Kurdish for avoiding the Theological Inclinations, is tradition.
