Harold Ford suggested today that we divide Iraq into three parts.
Here's what happens if the Galbraith Plan, as I call it, goes into effect
Kurdsitan declares independence.
Turkey invades the border area
The Shia start their civil war. When Sadr wins, he attacks Anbar, then Kurdistan.
Because the Shia have been denied the pleasure of running Iraq for centuries. Do you think when they have the main chance to do so, they're going to agree to any deal which would deny them that?
Right now, Maliki is saying "if you let us run the Army, we'll stop the guerrillas in six months". In English, that means, let us use our death squads to kill Sunnis.
If you think a Shia government is going to share oil with Kurds or Sunnis, you're on crack.
