WASHINGTON -- Sectarian violence is spreading in Iraq and the security problems have become more complex than at any time since the U.S. invasion in 2003, a Pentagon report said Friday.

In a notably gloomy report to Congress, the Pentagon reported that illegal militias have become more entrenched, especially in Baghdad neighborhoods where they are seen as providers of both security and basic social services.

I wonder what Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld have to say about this.

A tragic and most unfortunate state of affairs. The war is illegal. It is time to start bringing the troops home now. the presence of the US military is only exacerbating tensions and violence in Iraq.

No more killing in my name. Bring the troops home now.
