6. A signature of a Civil War very similar to what happened in Missouri 1863.
Being a border State the division of loyalties resulted in numerous killings in State. The result was abandonment of much of the State for the duration of the war, My wifes family still tells stories of bushwhackers (terrorists) and claiming Confederate and Union loyalty. One of her ancestors was killed by these bushwhackers.

When I heard the stories of the death squads and Sunni's leaving the country this sounds very similar. Would you say that Iraq is in the grips of a Civil War?
