The spectre of civil war

Jason Vest writes of a leaked memo from the CPA in Iraq warning that the handling of the occupation over the past year has "created an environment rife with corruption and sectarianism likely to result in civil war."

Meanwhile, Robert Fisk suggests in an interview on Australian television that the notion Iraq will descend into civil war "is being the Americans and the British in order to frighten the Iraqis into obedience."
