U.S. and Iraqi officials believe their best chance for a negotiated settlement of the insurgency involves driving a wedge between extremists and groups led by members of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party who want a share of power.


Al Qaeda is lending a hand by blowing up mosques and hospitals, and generally giving the insurgency a bad name.

But it's not going to be easy. The Sunni insurgents are going to want to "negotiate" Palestinian style - with talks at the table AND bombs in the streets. If the Iraqi government wants the bombs to stop they will have to make them an offer they can't refuse.
