The Iraqi Civil War in full affect?

Iraq breaking out into a civil war has been a concern from the beginning of the war. It’s been speculation up till now. But did you know they were in a civil war already? They aren’t of course. But if you listened to Meet the Press, Tom Brokaw, who was in Baghdad reporting, made sure that his view of it being a civil war came through in spades.

    MR. RUSSERT: On Wednesday, do you believe that martial law will be imposed?

    MR. BROKAW: I do think that there will be troops all over the streets here. The American forces are going to try to pull back into their garrisons. They'll use what patrols they can of the blue-shirted Iraqi police and the American patrols in strategic areas. But the White House is very determined that this week have what they're calling an Iraqi face. They want the Iraqi people to take control of their own destiny.
    But there is that pragmatic concern: How do you secure a country the size of California that is effectively already caught in a form of a civil war? You have anarchy in areas like Fallujah, and the insurgents now able to show strength throughout the length and breadth of this country, Tim.
Look for other journalist to pick up the ball and run with this “civil war” label. I’m sure it will gain popularity. Question: Journalist and liberals have all said that the insurgency is primarily from outside sources plus Baathist loyalist, who are otherwise known as “The enemy”, how can fighting these people be considered part of a civil war? I would consider it a civil war if the Shiites, Kurds, and Sunnis, all started fighting for power, but that is not happening. Calling this a civil war is Tom’s wishful thinking.
