The result need not be complete eradication, merely "ethnic cleansing" by specific targeting in conflicts where the distinction between military and civilian targets is nil. Ethnic cleansing is a genocidal activity.
That's what the US has done repeatedly in the Mideast. The arming of Sunni tribes in the Petraeus signature "Awakening" or "Sons of Iraq" programs are an example of arming and setting ethnic groups against each other, as is his and Sec. Clinton's arming the Sunni Jihadi opposition to overthrow the regime in Syria. These are related, as many of the Iraqi Awakening program militias coalesced with ISIS in Syria.
