  Allawi: Iraq is, in fact, in a Civil War
In case you were thinking, "Hey, maybe I can believe what the Bush Administration is telling me," here's another rude shock for you.

According to former Iraqi PM, the country is in the midst of a sectarian civil war. Said Allawi:

"It is unfortunate that we are in civil war. We are losing each day as an average 50 to 60 people throughout the country, if not more. If this is not civil war, then God knows what civil war is."

Hard to argue with that. But I doubt that will stop the Bushies from trying.

Also interesting that Allawi's comments come on the Global Day of Action against the war. I think we can all agree that the invasion was a tragic result of hubris, greed and deception. Nevertheless, the calls to 'end the war' and 'pull out the troops' seem tragically misguided. To abandon Iraq now would be a profoundly immoral and inhuman mistake. Like the man said, you break it, you bought it.
the future remains very unsure considering the pickle the bushies are in. Will civil war bring out democracy? Maybe thats what Iraq needed. Tragic.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
