    Civil War Looms With 66 Killed in Baghdad

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - A series of suicide attacks, car bombs and mortar barrages rocked Baghdad on Tuesday, killing at least 66 people and wounding scores as Iraq teetered on the brink of sectarian civil war. President Bush decried the violence and said Iraqis must choose between "chaos or unity." Iraqis have suffered through days of reprisal killings and attacks on Sunni mosques since bombers blew apart the gold dome of the revered Shiite Askariya shrine in Samarra on Wednesday. The Iraqi Cabinet said at least 379 people had been killed and 458 wounded in reprisal attacks....

    And Bush is putting the 'choice' between chaos and unity in the hands of the Iraqi people....

    "And I hope you'll understand if any of us come before a court and we can't remember Abramoff, you'll tend to believe us." - Senator Lindsey Graham.

      They said that the Iraqis had looked into the abyss and stepped back. The problem is bush has them on a tightrope that is frayed at both ends, and they have no place to go but down.
      •  Rove said the bombing was a positive development (none)
        speaking to Fox News Radio interviewer Tony Snow on February 23, 2006:

        SNOW: So you expect this [the bombing of the mosque] is going to strengthen the opposition to the terrorists?

        ROVE: I think it could. I think it's likely to.
