Iraqi Civil War? Some People Think It Wouldn't Be So Bad

Spencer Ackerman in the New Republic (via Washington Monthly) discusses the horrifyingly casual way in which some people talk about the possibility of a civil war in Iraq and how they think it wouldn't be any "worse" than what happened in Lebanon, where a mere 100,000 people were killed, 1,000,000 displaced, and the country thrown into war and foreign domination for 30 years.

I guess it's easy to talk about these things when other people are doing the dying.
