Civil war in Iraq

Joe, is it okay to speak out against this war now?
As Pentagon generals offered optimistic assessments that the sectarian violence in Iraq had dissipated this weekend, other military experts told ABC News that Sunni and Shiite groups in Iraq already are engaged in a civil war, and that the Iraqi government and U.S. military had better accept that fact and adapt accordingly.

"We're in a civil war now; it's just that not everybody's joined in," said retired Army Maj. Gen. William L. Nash, a former military commander in Bosnia-Herzegovina. "The failure to understand that the civil war is already taking place, just not necessarily at the maximum level, means that our counter measures are inadequate and therefore dangerous to our long-term interest.

"It's our failure to understand reality that has caused us to be late throughout this experience of the last three years in Iraq," added Nash, who is an ABC News consultant.
Well Bush supporters, this is what you voted for. We have an incompetent administration that refuses to see the reality of the situation in Iraq which has cost the lives of hundreds of innocent Iraqis in the last two weeks alone.

There is no end in sight, when will the public wake up and hold this administration accountable for their mistakes. At least we can throw out some of the administration's cheerleaders this year.
