Can't be. The New York Times knows everything and is always right.
Journalistic truth doesnt meet with the Mainstream Media Agenda...just doesnt.
What a great title, and slap at that fat ingrate, Michael Moore.
Iran is not a country without an ability to stir up trouble or foment civil strife in Iraq.
Great read, AND I hate to be a pest, **BUT** what is your html or print source? WHO typed this? Can you provide a link?

This writer is obviously full of crap. It's not like he's there.... (sarcasm)
The MSM wants the appearance of a Civil War so they can make the same claim in Vietnam that the hostilities are just a civil war and the US has no business being there.
We ought to sue the MSM for malfeasance.
The civil war was predicted by the same folks who predicted:
100,000 U.S. body bags in Afghanistan.
A Soviet style bog down in the Afghani mountains.
A collapse of U.S. control into just Kabul.
The failure of Afghan tribal factions to form a government.
The failure of President Karzai to hold the Afghan govt. together, once formed.
A success for the "containment" policy in Iraq.
A breakaway Kurdish state, causing civil war in Turkey.
A stiff resistance by the Republican Guard.
Repeated terrorist retaliations from Al Queda in the U.S.
Widespread evidence of government sanctioned torture.
Mass arrests of Arab-American citizens without trial.
Violent assaults on Muslims in the U.S. by redneck hoodlums.
Failure to supress radical Shia clerics, leading to civil war.
Zarkawi winning the popular support of the Sunni Triangle.
The escape of Saddam and sons.
The failure of the writing of a draft of the constitution.
The failure of the popular vote by Iraqi citizens.
The failure of the 2nd popular vote by Iraqi citizens.
The failure of the 3rd popular vote by Iraqi citizens.
The failure of the ratification of the constitution.
These guys are like "French Benefits" Frank, in the commercial. They're always wrong.
I've been hearing the media get all hopped up over a civil war for at least the more than two years I've been here and I've never seen it.
We have a new source of amusement at dinnertime. We watch CNN in the chow hall and when they start their nightly Iraq-Fiction, we laugh at just about every sentence of crapola Anish Ramin (or whatever his name is) spews. It's not worth getting angry about anymore.
CNN's location is Baghdad is very close to where we are. They're seeing the same things we are, but the difference is that they lie about it and we don't.
