Thread Name: BS: Why no new Iraq thread?
Subject: RE: BS: Why no new Iraq thread?

As I said earlier, which "Iraqi people"?-the Sunnis who are killing the Shiites, the Shiites who are killing the Sunnis, or the Kurds who want nothing to do with "Iraq"?

Or the intellectuals and professional classes who have fled or are fleeing the country?

If the constitution is not changed to take the Sunnis' interests into account, the civil war stands to do nothing but get worse.

And by the way--you still haven't bothered to tell us what "victory" is this time--the last one somehow wasn't impressive.

The "Iraqi people" are a "people" as much as the "Yugoslav people" were. Wake up.

"Iraq" was a totally artificial construction which has never been without a ruler.   One ruler.
