Clueless Statement of the Day

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Monday he does not expect civil war in Iraq.


Maybe he should read Juan Cole:

"What I miss in these discussions of the guerrillas, however, is an understanding of their ultimate goal. It is to mobilize the urban masses against the occupation. They cannot win militarily, and can never be more than mosquitos to the US military behemoth in their midst...All of the guerrillas' actions are aimed at hastening that urban revolution...It is only after the Americans are gone that these various movements would then likely fall upon one another."
