    "Has the slide to civil war already begun?"

    All I can say is that it's a hell of a long slide. And at the bottom of it is a quagmire. And then it must all start again because it is a cycle of violence.

    It doesn't matter how many Iraqis come onto the radio to say that there will be no civil war (as one did on Today this morning), the BBC will ignore them and trot out the "slide to civil war" line.

    I also didn't see much about the assault on the terrorists at Talafar having been mainly planned and carried out by the Iraqi army, with only support from the Americans. I could have sworn, only a month or so ago, the Guardian running a feature on how the Iraqi forces were years away from self-sufficiency. Time sure flies when you're economical with the truth, don't it?
