In this Monday, Feb. 18, 2013 photo, Sheik Ahmed Abu Risha, leader of Anbar province Awakening Council, speaks during an interview with the Associated Press in Ramadi, 70 miles (115 kilometers) west of Baghdad, Iraq. The Sunni tribesmen camped out on the edge of this one-time Iraqi insurgent stronghold are digging in and growing more organized, vowing to keep up their protests against a Shiite-led government they feel has left them behind. Now a prominent sheik who once helped Americans battle al-Qaida is warning that protesters will seek to bring down the government if their demands aren't met. He speaks ominously that armed militants who once fought U.S. troops could rally to the cause. (AP Photo/Khalid Mohammed)
