Bush: Iraq Has Not Fallen Into Civil War: "'Our commanders and diplomats on the ground believe that Iraq has not descended into a civil war,' Bush said Saturday in his weekly radio address. 'They report that only a small number of Iraqis are engaged in sectarian violence, while the overwhelming majority want peace and a normal life in a unified country.'"
