Reader comment on item: The case for 'Iraqification'

Submitted by E. J. Blumberg (United States), Nov 19, 2003 at 22:53

To prevent another Hussein in person or similar personality:

1. Create a new country in Northern Iraq, it and its petroleum controlled by the Kurds. Tough luck Turks, you didn't support the U.S. efforts to pacify Iraq, thereby prolonging the conflict and making it much more difficult.

2. Create a new country in Southern Iraq, controlling the southern petroleum deposits. They have indicated their ability to live peaceably.

3. Give Central Iraq back to its present inhabitants. They deserve one another and without petroleum financing, there will be little opportunity for mischief making.
