Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer reiterated his position in today's Washington Post that the violence in Iraq constitutes a civil war.
Of Course It's a Civil War


This whole debate about civil war is surreal. What is the insurgency if not a war supported by one (minority) part of Iraqi society fighting to prevent the birth of the new Iraqi state supported by another (majority) part of Iraqi society?

By definition that is civil war, and there's nothing new about it.
If this is true, which it looks to be, it helps demonstrate once again the immense risks we take when we take over wholesale another society.
