It definitely looks like it's time for everyone to lighten up. Yesterday General Electric the parent company of NBC, fresh from their success with the Madonna concert at Wembley Stadium in London announced that it had instructed its news anchors to now refer to the conflict in Iraq as a "Civil War." Today President Bush fired back that Iraq was not in a "Civil War." A Civil War according to the dictionaries is defined as a struggle between various groups (or regions) of a country. If that's the case then why wasn't Iraq called a Civil War months ago? Are we all illiterate or just completely spun out and brainwashed?
