Hoystory looks at this bit with NBC unilaterally deciding Iraq is in a Civil war, and asks a question I don’t think I’ve seen elsewhere:

The closest comparison to Iraq that I can think of — and it was less violent than what we’ve got going in Iraq today — was the conflict in Northern Ireland between the IRA and the Brits.

Did the media ever characterize that conflict as a civil war?

Come to think of it, for all of the comparisons drawn by the left… and of course in this I include the MSM… between Vietnam and Iraq, I don’t think I’d ever remember Vietnam being considered a civil war, either.  And I wonder if there isn’t something to this.
