They call this spin?
Over the last tow weeks, politicians and the media have been arguing that all out civil war is about to break out in Iraq. This is what people warned about when the invasion first took place. That's not the amazing part. The amazing part is how the hawks are now spinning this. Are you ready?
Civil war ain't so bad.
I swear to God, I was watching the Sunday talk shows this week and republican after Republican came along and said "A civil war in Iraq would not necessarilly be devestating." The gist of the argument wa that civil war was somehow a necessary step in the development of democracy. "After all" more then one of them said, "America had to go through its own civil war before we could become a unified nation." (Ignoring the fact that, in many ways, we are still fighting that war).
Call me incredulous, but I just don't buy it.
