Iraq headed for civil war?

Patrick Cockburn, writing in the Independent, argues that Iraq is splitting along the expected sectarian lines: Kurd, Shia, and Sunni. In it he quotes Zilmay Khalilzad, the American ambassador to Iraq:
You can't have someone who is regarded as sectarian, for example, as Minister of the Interior.
This is a little rich, coming from a representative of the most divisive, exclusionary administration I've seen in my life. Pot, meet kettle.
