How likely/unlikely do you think it is that the current situation in Iraq will escalate into a civil war, and what would be some of the determining factors either way?

I don't think it is as likely as CBS would let you think (They are convinced Iraq has been fighting a civil war since 1995) however the possibility is there.

All in all, things cool down before a true, flow blown civil war breaks out.

The liberal media always portrays the situation in Iraq as being worse than it really is. Although it may be as bad as they say it is, I really doubt it. Then again, i've been "brainwashed" by Rush.

Civil war definition includes the loss of central government power over the army and branch of governments and heavy clashes between sects of a country over gaining power

I dont see this in Iraq

Quite right. I'd be more concerned if the Sunnis weren't the minority, but that is not the case, and they have their fair share of power in the current government so it is not like they (the upstanding, law abiding Sunnis) are without a voice. The foreign fighters within the insurgent ranks are dragging this conflict on, and once the Iraqi govt steps up and cracks down on foreign infiltration, the situation will get a whole lot better, quicker. The way to do that: turn the domestic insurgents against the foreign fighters. It won't be easy.
