Iraqi Civil War?

Actually, the final comment in the post below might be too optimistic. Stories like this one make me wonder if we might already be seeing a civil war bewteen Iraqis based on their attitude toward the American presence. Violence in the country increasingly seems to be between anti-occupation and pro-occupation forces, and even episodes such as the terrorist attack last summer that killed Ayatollah Muhammad Baqir al-Hakim in Najaf seem to fit the same mold.

UPDATE: Incidentally, this article provides a solid perspective of why many Iraqis don't but into the idea of the transfer of sovereignty.
