Weren t the Shiites happy to see Americans try to put down the Sunni resistance?

A. Yes. But in the meantime, and with American support, the Shiites religious parties and militias made a power grab. In alliance with the Kurds, they shut out the Sunnis from nearly all centers of power, rammed through a constitution favorable to themselves, and stacked the police and army with Shiite militiamen. They created a tyranny of the majority, making it nearly impossible for moderate Sunnis to support the U.S.- approved government and leading a majority of Sunnis to support the insurgents.
