THE WAR IS US

 THE 
        WAR IS US

There
is no way to see the Iraq war as a local one. The armies in Iraq
are regular armies, but there are also irregular ones confronting each
other
all over the Middle East, and a political battle being fought all over

the world. Historians may hesitate to call it a World War, but
these historians usually are not able to size and name events, anyway.
