It's a civil war

So sorry, but isn't that yet clear?

NBC is right, this time.

We have armed militias, and wink and a nod semi government death squads operating with outright and quasi support of the government against a murderous minority formerly in power, which will simply not acquiesce to the needs of any kind of pluralistic society, and believes they are a much larger percentage of the population then they are.

I predict that this is not going to be contained at ANY negotiating table on this planet.

It's to the death.

We BLEW any chance there MIGHT have been VERY EARLY. But realistically speaking, just like Yugoslavia, what we have seen is the model for the future for nation states made up of ancient hostilities long suppressed.

I personally believe there was no avoiding this, NOW. I believed it COULD be avoided, but might not be.

Iraq is a civil war, in a nation which never existed except in the mind of Sykes and Picot, in a land contested by THESE SAME PEOPLES since pre-medieval struggles.

Remember THIS?
September 4th...feels like a year ago, and it was RIGHT ON

Duhhh! Iraq's been a civil war since it was founded by the Brits. Nothing new there. Question is, what do you do with this long standing civil war that's also happening in Lebanon simultaneously? That threatens to involve the whole damned muslim middle east of Shias and Sunnis? What you gonna do?

It's the damned muslims' problem, it's in their nature to hate outside the clanoutside the tribe outside the sect outside the religion outside the arab population. Hate, hate, hate flows in their veins instead of blood. Maybe it's better to get it out in the open so maybe the fools will have their own dysfunctionality rubbed in their faces so hard they can't deny it any longer, can't blame everyone else like they usually do.

they should have split up Iraq after they invaded. sunni, shia and kurd. iraq after all is an artifical construct.

sure there will be civil war , but why not stand back and let the Muslims kill each other.

then again - maybe that was the whole point of the invasion in the first place. give them freedom and see what they do with it - oh dear - they fuck it up. oh well - we tried. bye bye...
