  • An idea for the fighting in Iraq..

    Folks,

    With all the different groups and factions fighting for their piece of the pie in Iraq, why not step back and let them have at each other?

    Right now, they're united in their opposition against us. I think if we were to get out, they'd wage a full scale battle royal against themselves. We should sit back and let the chips fall where they may, then we may be in a better position to clean house.

    Any thoughts?

    You mean, THEN go back over there?

    And do what?

    If we get out now and let that happen, WTF would we go back over there?

    Maybe they rebuild and get stronger or come over here and do shit.

      here's a great thought

      can the idea of a self governing Iraq. Kurdistan, a Shi'a state, and a Sunni state. Three oil fields, three ethnic groups. Divy it up before Baghdad is Sarajevo revisited.
      Are you on the list?

        That's eventually what's going to happen anyway, but we have to at least TRY to do the proverbial right thing.

          Why stop at three?

          Let them form fifty independent states. The smaller the better.

            Not really. Then they're vulnerable to a takeover by Iran (or God knows who else), and our problem has doubled.

            If we were really smart, the 80 percent of the world that doesn't have the misfortune of being Middle Eastern should simply buddy up and just take the whole fuckin' thing over. We get cheap oil, they get cool Gap clothes.
