I'm a foreign affairs idiot but a story today out of Iraq seems huge.
There are Shiites and Sunnis in Iraq. I'm not exactly sure what the difference is but is seems like they can be compared to The Union and the Confederacy. Well, today "the golden dome" of one of the holiest Shiite shrines was blown up. (Great before and after pic here.) And the Shiites blame the Sunnis. That led to massive retaliation.
The use of the term "Civil War" in Iraq was all over the news.
Mark it on your calenders. Today might have been Iraq's attack of Fort Sumter.
