BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- One of Iraq's most visible insurgent groups is reiterating its interest in negotiating with U.S. forces.

CNN obtained the professionally produced videotaped message Sunday. In it, the speaker -- whose face is obscured -- offers a set of conditions for what he says could lead to an end to the group's ongoing insurgency and peace with U.S. occupation forces.

I am of the opinion that this might be a perfect opportunity for peace in Iraq.I am by no means advocating a Camp David summit, but rather a low level commencement of talks with groups such as this.

Not Al Queda, but if the militias and Neighborhood groups are willing to talk, sure.

They have to talk. The Sh-ites and Sunnis have to agree how they will govern the country democratically.

The Sunni insurgents are suddenly realising that the US might be pulling out anyway, leaving them to the tender mercies of their Shia and Kurdish brethren. Even if they Shia/Kurds don't attack the Sunni heartland in Anbar, there's no oil (or much of anything else) there so the Sunnis will be left to slowly starve to death. The only way to stop this is to keep the US forces in place and maintain some sort of unified Iraq.

The Sunni's are going to have to accept majority rule. It's the only way but that's why they're fighting - in a mad attempt to keep their ascendancy.

Last summer we almost had a deal with the insurgent groups,minus AQ, but the Iranian backed militias kicked off their Sunni hit squads which derailed the deal.
