Iraq's former interim prime minister said the increasing attacks across his country can only be described as a civil war, and that the United States and Europe could be touched by spreading violence, according to an interview aired Sunday.
"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," Ayad Allawi told the British Broadcasting Corp. "If this is not civil war, then God knows what civil war is."
GOI: This is coming from the Bush administrations darling that they hand-picked. There is nothing wrong with admitting the truth. Truth allows us to look at the situation as it really is rather then believing things are fine when they aren't. Sure there are some good things happening in Iraq but if you can not provide basic security then what is the good of having new schools open? Who would want to send their kids out onto those streets right now to walk to those new schools?? Would you? I mean, come on. Seriously.
We can not win this war with rhetoric saying black is white and white is black. The truth is we are in a CIVIL WAR so given that reality we need to reaccess what we are doing over there and what we need to do differently. There have even been some prominate Conservatives [William F. Buckley, Fukuyama] who have jumped ship with the President on the reality of this war because the President refuses to acknowledge the truth. He is of the delusion that it is everyone's fault but his own. Don't believe me but if you can't believe these Conservatives and now Ayad Allawi then I have to say that you are delusional.
