Iraq Civil War

They finally admit the Truth You know when they finally have to admit that Iraq is in the middle of a bonafide Civil War and use those specific words, that Iraq is in a world of hurt.   Just as they have had to admit that none of their 'intelligence' assesments of what is actually on the ground in real terms is anything but the way they have called it so far.   - fc

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.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York told Rumsfeld he was "presiding over a failed policy" in Iraq, and asked him why lawmakers should believe his assurances that conditions in Iraq would improve.

Clinton later told the Associated Press the president should accept Rumsfeld's resignation.
