I agree with your assessment. The American people are fed up with this war, not only with their owm soldiers being harmed, but also the number of Iraqis being killed and displaced. It's one thing for an internal revolution to cause such destruction, but the US being the cause creates a different dynamic. Hussein and his ilk captured a country, but by the time this war is over more Iraqis will have been harmed than under Hussein's rule.

As for the Kurds, you are probably correct. However the Kurds have the distinction of being the longest running indigenous people in this world never to have had their own nation! Why even the Jews have had at least two, or is it three!
