Iraq Violence Spreading

Well, what can I say? Now even the Pentagon in a report to Congress is saying that sectarian violence is spreading [in Iraq] and "the security problems have become more complex than at
any time since the US invasion in 2003..."

An article by Robert Burns, AP Military Writer, in the Congressional Report, says that militias have become more entrenched in Baghdad, sectarian violence has escalated due to interference from Iran and Syria, death squads have become a growing problem, concerns about civil war developing in Iraq have increased in the last few months.

Even military commanders and others in recent weeks have expressed similar concerns. The report expresses an extremely weak optimism about being able to stop the violence and head off civil war. How much more do we have to be told about this war to get out, huh, Mr. Bush?
