Time to re-write some US history

Filed under: punchbowl — Matt @ 20:25

I was listening to the news on the radio the other day and heard some audio clips of General Casey, US commander on the ground in Iraq, explaining why Iraq isn’t currently in a civil war. I’m paraphrasing, but the gist of it was:

  1. The Iraqi government isn’t calling it a civil war.
  2. The Iraqi government is still functioning.
  3. The Iraqi military is still taking orders from the Iraqi government.

Now, let’s stipulate the last two are more, rather than less, true. I realized we have to rewrite US history books. After all, the federal government was still functioning and the military still taking orders from them in the US Civil War.
