Threat of Iraq civil war escalates with every bombQuicklink submitted By tedbohne Permalink
|Almost every day brings new attacks and every bloodbath deepens the desire for revenge...The mutual mistrust is also growing in political circles. Trouble was brewing Tuesday after interim Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jafari paid a surprise visit to Turkey.
President Jalal Talabani admitted that he had not been informed of the visit, while al-Jafari's own Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari conceded that he had only learnt about the trip through media reports.
Every bomb perpetuates the wave of violence and draws Iraq closer to a civil war.
The current disintegration in the country certainly seems to be heading towards that end, bringing with it terrible consequences for the unstable but oil-rich Mideast region.
Neighbouring countries such as Sunni Saudi Arabia, Shiite Iran, or Turkey with its historic claim on northern Iraq's Kurdish region, could be dragged into an inconceivable religious and ethnic war.
