:: I Was Going To Say That

I was going to say that the civil war in Iraq (yeah, I said it - civil war) is beginning to look a lot like the conflict in Northern Ireland. But, Eugene Robinson beat me to it. Maybe it is the walls. Or the fact that both are conflicts between two sects of the same religion and two peoples who look an awful lot a like. Or the fact that each side points to wrongs perpetrated thousands of years ago (Battle of the Boyne anyone?) as justification for car bombs today.

Maybe former US Senator George Mitchell needs to get to work on this Iraq thing.

I believe the Senator is too busy at the moment - I heard he's touring Europe, with Terrence Trent D'Arby as the opening act.
