A Civil War

NBC and MSNBC are finally calling the civil war in Iraq a civil war. The Bush administration is having a duckfit about it, claiming that the violence is primarily in Bagdad. As if that makes a difference.

Newsflash, Mr. Bush. In our Civil War, the violence was primarily where the Army of Northern Virginia and the Union Army happened to be when they were conducting all that violence. First, then twice, it was at Bull Run. Once it was at Sharpsburg. Once it was at Gettysburg. Once it was in Richmond. Wherever it was, it involved a whole lot of people trying their damnedest to kill each other with guns, with knives, with bayonets, with mortars and with bombs.

You know. Just like now in Bagdad.
