America has sown the seeds of civil war in Iraq

They get their dead in neat caskets draped with a flag; we have to gather and scrape our dead off of the floors and hope the American shrapnel and bullets left enough to make a definite identification.” So wrote the author of the weblog Baghdad Burning, as she tried to draw attention to the tragic reality of life in occupied Baghdad.

It is this bereavement and anger among Iraqis – some of it expressed in mortars and homemade bombs – that has forced Bush and Blair to abandon any fanfare and hand over “sovereignty” in a secret bunker guarded by tanks. Not one signal of popular joy greeted the historic event.
