Is there a civil war in Iraq?

It appears that one has been going on for many years.

Read Michael Yon’s thoughtful dissertation on this complex subject. It gave me a different insight on what may lie ahead for Iraq.

To give you the flavor of Michael’s writing, I have taken this image  and the following quote from Michael Yon’s article:

When I asked this Yezidi headman when he thought the war began, he could not remember a time in his life when there wasn’t a war. Except for the past ten years, when the American military prevented Saddam from committing further atrocities upon the Kurds.

Read the rest of Michael’s post, it will provide background material for understanding my previous post about an Iraqi blogger.
