Powell says world should recognize Iraq at civil war
(Diala Saadeh, Reuters, November 29, 2006)
Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said on Wednesday Iraq had descended into civil war and urged world leaders to accept that "reality". . . . Powell's remarks came ahead of a meeting between Bush and Iraqi prime minister Nuri al-Maliki in the Jordanian capital to discuss the security developments in Iraq. . . . "I would call it a civil war," Powell told a business forum in the United Arab Emirates. "I have been using it (civil war) because I like to face the reality," added Powell. . . . He said world leaders should acknowledge Iraq was in civil war. . . . Bush is under growing pressure to find a new policy to curb sectarian strife in Iraq and to secure an exit for 140,000 U.S. troops . . . Powell, speaking at a world leaders forum in Dubai, said Washington should adopt a more balanced policy toward Iraq's political parties and sects to avoid marginalizing Sunni Muslims. . . . "We have to accept what all Iraqis accept, not to end up seeing a Shi'ite-dominated regime," he said. . . . "The coming strategy has to be an Iraqi strategy, not American strategy," said Powell.
