    US soldiers calls for withdrawal, Iraqis claim civil war has begun

    What will the right-wing blogosphere do?
    The recent assertion by U.S. soldiers here that Iraq is in a civil war is a stunning indication that American efforts to bring peace and democracy to Iraq are failing, more than three years after the toppling of dictator Saddam Hussein's regime.

    Some Iraqi troops, too, share that assessment.

    "This is a civil war," said a senior adviser to the commander of the Iraqi Army's 6th Division, which oversees much of Baghdad.

    "The problem between Sunnis and Shiites is a religious one, and it gets worse every time they attack each other's mosques," said the adviser, who gave only his rank and first name, Col. Ahmed, because of security concerns. "Iraq is now caught in hell."
    ...
    "There's no plan - we are constantly reacting," said a senior American military official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "I have absolutely no idea what we're going to do."
    ...
    "I don't think there's any winning here. Victory for us is withdrawing," said Sgt. James Ellis, 25, of Chicago. "In this part of the world they have been fighting for 3,000 years, and we're not going to fix it in three." [link]

    Oh how the right-wingers must be fuming...

    Will local blogs like OldController and new wars as well as the entire right-wing blogosphere smear the soldiers like they smear Democrats and liberals that have been saying this for months?
