an army of one..idiotThey are starting to admit that the Civil War we have been reporting here for the past couple of months MAY Acutally happen. In another couple of months will say “It is a definite possiblility.” Then in a year from now they will say “Its not beyond the realm of possibility” Meanwhile dozens to hundreds of people a day are dying in a war between two different factions of the same country. Kind of like what happened here in the U.S. between 1861-1865. Now what did we call that war again…hold on let me pull out my history book….Oh yeah, THE CIVIL WAR. How dumb of me to forget.

Top U.S. generals warn of Iraq civil war

Excerpt
WASHINGTON – Two top Pentagon commanders said Thursday that spiraling violence in Baghdad could propel Iraq into outright civil war, using a politically loaded term that the Bush administration has long avoided.

The generals said they believe a full-scale civil war is unlikely. Even so, their comments to Congress cast the war in more somber hues than the administration usually uses, and further dampened lawmakers’ hopes that troops would begin returning home in substantial numbers from the widely unpopular war in time for this fall’s elections.

“I believe that the sectarian violence is probably as bad as I have seen it, in Baghdad in particular, and that if not stopped it is possible that Iraq could move toward civil war,” Gen. John Abizaid, the top U.S. commander in the Middle East, told the Senate Armed Services Committee
