Every day, it seems, the NY Times online leads with a headline like, “Suicide Attack Kills at Least 22 in Iraqi City of Kirkuk.” Many of us who opposed the war did so, in part, because we feared that destabilizing Iraq would provoke a civil war that would prove a humanitarian crisis worse than even Saddam’s regime. I wonder how American sentiment toward our role in Iraq would change if we admitted that the civil war has already begun?
