JK: Not directly, but there actually are some hints, and one of them is now all this talk about civil war, because even the densest of journalists in Baghdad understand that the insurgents can't win now. You know, last year, the meme was the insurgents are winning. They're ahead, they're going to triumph. Now, with Sunni tribesmen hunting down al Qaeda wherever they can find them, no person with an IQ above a carrot can make that claim. So now the meme is we're in a civil war, or on the verge of a civil war, and all of this is going to be hopeless for a different reason. But it's not the reason that the insurgents are winning. No one can say that anymore.Radioblogger, also see Jack Kelly's column
