northern Iraq, Tel Afar, between Shi'ite Turkmen and anti-Shiite Takfiri forces, meaning it's not so much a civil war as a foreign attack. Still, not good for Iraq. Better notes on an increasing precipitous situation involve Speaker of the Iraqi parliament calling to bring Sunni rebels into the government and Al-Sadr managing to mitigate civil conflict. Cooler heads will have much more difficult prevailing to do soon.
