Well, incredibly predictably, the much-anticipated Iraqi Civil War didn't happen as hoped for, and what little there was of it was exaggerated by a factor of four. I would like to say that last weekend's orgy of "CIVIL WAH NOW!" stories was an example of a ridiculous media nonevent transformed into something we needed to be deathly afraid of.
But, in, truth, the mainstream media has been making this ridiculous pronouncement for a long, long time.
