Fox News political analyst Dick Morris claimed that there is no civil war coming to Iraq because "when Iraqi politicians negotiate over the coalition of their cabinet, they bomb each other's mosques."

During a March 13 discussion on Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor of President Bush's public campaign to garner support for the war in Iraq, Fox News political analyst Dick Morris claimed that there is no civil war coming to Iraq because "when Iraqi politicians negotiate over the coalition of their cabinet, they bomb each other's mosques." The current bloodshed in Iraq "simply is a negotiation, Iraq-style," Morris added.

From the March 13 broadcast of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor, with host Bill O'Reilly:

O'REILLY: All right. The president was at George Washington University today, trying to convince Americans the Iraq thing is gonna turn out OK. Will he be successful in doing this?

MORRIS: Well, first of all, just to comment about Iraq. When American politicians negotiate, they yell at each other. When French politicians negotiate, there are riots in the streets. When Iraqi politicians negotiate over the coalition of their cabinet, they bomb each other's mosques. This is not a civil war that's coming. It simply is a negotiation, Iraq-style.
