  English Civil War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The wars inextricably mingled with and formed part of a linked series of conflicts and civil wars between 1639 and 1651 in the kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland, which at that time shared a monarch but formed distinct countries with otherwise separate political structures.
The wars led to the trial and execution of Charles I, the exile of his son Charles II, and the replacement of the English monarchy with the Commonwealth of England (1649 - 1653) and then with a Protectorate (1653 - 1659): the personal rule of Oliver Cromwell.
Wars of the Roses for a preceding case of the deposition of a king/dynasty and his royal court by a reformatory rebellion led by a Lord Protector (with a Burgundian alliance, rather than a Dutch one).

 Chronological list of events in the Hundred Years' War

The study of the Hundred Years' War is complicated by the infusion of related events ­ often separate wars in their own spheres ­ that sometimes were integrated with, and at other times they only casually affected, the developments of the greater struggle.

 Think Progress » George Will: “This Is A Civil War”
If someone’s going to characterize this mess as a ‘Civil War’, they should be able to define the U.S. Military’s place in it; that is, for the purpose of justifying a continued U.S. Military presence in Iraq, which is what the ‘Civil War’ talking point is meant to do.
So, first a Civil War in Iraq is described as a good thing, then we observe that Iraq is in a Civil War, which is a good thing.
Events have not quite gone according to plan but results are not far from what was intended.

The true war aims of of the coalition that defeated Saddam's army were, in ascending order of importance, the liberation of Kuwait, the destruction of Baghdad's offensive military capabilities, and the removal of Saddam.
A timeline of events during the war and up to elections recently (and next month) can certainly add a layer of record for all to judge the administration's handling of the war.
In any event, while I thoroughly disagree with those who would maintain that Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11, the attacks that day were, indeed, a declaration of war (albeit not the first, mind you), made by an enemy heretofore largely unknown to us.
