I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Those who speak the truth are heroes, anything less is a lie.

This. This Is Civil War

Conservative columnist George Will this morning on ABC’s This Week:
STEPHANOPOULOS: What does civil war look like?

WILL: This. This is a civil war.
Later, George Will even questioned whether Iraq can truly be said to have a government:

Now, does Iraq have a government? Let me just postulate the question. A government exists when it has a reasonable monopoly on the legitimate use of violence. As long as the militias are out there, the existence of an Iraqi government is questionable. Think of Los Angeles. If Los Angeles said the Bloods and the Crips are going to be tolerated, they’re going to be armed and police their areas and enforce the law in certain areas, what sense would Los Angeles have of government?
