Is This What Civil War Looks Like?
The escalation of violence between Shiites and Sunnis in Iraq, especially the Sadr City attacks last week, has many bloggers asking what separates sectarian violence from all-out civil war.
Sectarian violence in Iraq is at its worst level since the U.S.-led coalition invaded the country and toppled Saddam Hussein. Car bombs in a Shiite stronghold killed at least 160 last week in the bloodiest single attack of the war, pushing Iraq closer to anarchy. A state of emergency in the country has done little to quell the bloodshed.
As The Lady Speaks blogs, “Can we call it a civil war yet?” John at Independent Voice thinks if Iraq isn’t there yet, we are about to see a civil war. “The mission is far from accomplished. An all out civil war is just around the corner,” he blogs. [emphasis mine]
It is my blog’s name, and it is the headline of one of my recent posts on Iraq. But is it definitely mine??
Unfortunately, Melissa P. McNamara doesn’t link to any of the blogs mentioned in this section, so – like the answer to the age-old question, “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie-Pop?” – the world may never know.
I’m saying it is. What the heck. Without a link, no one can prove it isn’t mine, right?
