In an appearance before a Senate committee, the top U.S. commander in Iraq admitted that Iraq was likely moving towards civil war. The observation came after a memo by the British ambassador to Iraq made similar comments in a diplomatic dispatch. This comes on the heels of a recent United Nations report that an average of 100 civilians died in Iraq every day during June.
Well, this is certainly stunning news. I had been under the impression that things in Iraq were just peachy keen, and that all the negative news items coming out of there were being made up by unpatriotic members of the press. At least that's what Bush and Cheney have been telling us, and they certainly wouldn't lie to the American people, would they?
