Four, Four, Four-Wars-In-One!

Robert Gates, denying there is a civil war in Iraq during today’s testimony before the Senate Armed Forces Committee:

“There are four wars going on in Iraq right now, simultaneously: Shia on Shia conflict in the south; sectarian violence, particularly in Baghdad, but also in Diyala and a couple of other provinces; an insurgency; and Al Qaeda.”

Apparently, when it walks like a duck and talks like a duck – it’s now classified as “some sort of acquatic fowl.”

Civil War: “A war between factions or regions of the same country.”
