Civil War in Iraq

Iraq is in chaos after the bombing of the Golden Mosque in Samarra.More than 200 people have bee killed in the uproar that followed the bombing. Various media reports indicate more up to 200 mosques have been attacked in retaliation. The religious violence is derailing plans to form a national unity government representing all factions. Despite curfews and government attempts to get control of the situation Iraq is on the verge of meltdown. The result may be a partitioning of Iraq into three sectarian units.

This is the result of George Bush's War. Didn't he declare victory a couple of years ago?

i can't help but think this was all by design, provacator's shall we say.

first the anti-muslim cartoons were published and re-published, then the 2nd edition of the abu graib torture photo's were released (what timing) and now the mosques in iraq
(who really blew up the mosques?)

cui bono - who benefits?
