AP: Violence pushing Iraq toward civil war?

What the heck are we doing there again?: "With the gleaming dome of the 1,200-year-old Askariya shrine reduced to rubble, some Shiites lashed out at the United States as partly to blame.

The violence - many of the 90 attacks on Sunni mosques were carried out by Shiite militias - seemed to push Iraq closer to all-out civil war than at any point in the three years since the U.S.-led overthrow of Saddam Hussein."

I find the transformation of the narrative from "the possibility of a civil war" to the "probability of a civil war," or in some cases "the beginning of the civil war" a significant change in how Iraq is presented that could have major ramifications all over the place.

After all, the media determines our reality, not facts.
