Iraq's Civil War

Lately on Air America there has been discussion whether Iraq is in a civil war.

Deaths are now at about 100 a day, according to this article:

That’s up from 50 when I wrote this post in April:

It’s about a third as deadly as the U.S. Civil War. I would say that qualifies.

It is peculiar debating semantics, in an age of "unlawful detainee".

The media makes it out to be beyond civil war. The way I've interpreted everything points more in the direction of anarchy.
