about Iraq’s Civil War

"…to point at the moon a finger is needed,
but woe to those who take the finger for the moon…"

"existence precedes essence"

"if it quacks like a duck,
it’s a duck…"

Whether it’s a Zen saying, a tenet of Existentialism, or a sarcastic quip, the wisdom remains the same. What you call something doesn’t define what it is.

U.S. President George W. Bush deflected talk of civil war in Iraq on Tuesday and said Washington’s conditions for talking to Iran remained that Tehran must first suspend nuclear fuel enrichment.

Asked what the difference was between the current bloodshed in Iraq and civil war, Bush said the latest bombings were part of a nine-month-old pattern of attacks by al Qaeda militants aimed at fomenting sectarian violence by provoking retaliation.
