At a press conference following high level talks with Costa Rican Prime Minister Humberto Sanchez, President Bush was questioned about new sectarian violence in Baghdad, and whether it is civil war, but demurred, saying “It depends on what you mean the word ‘is’ is.

“And you know, it depends on how you define the word ‘civil war.’ Like the civil war we all remember, the American civil war, there were two sides in opposition, worsening opposition over the issues surrounding slavery. And then, in the Spanish civil war, they were all Spanish.”
