European powers thought it best to craft this area into a country for mostly British interests, and clearly not for those who had to abide within the boundaries.  With the absence of a powerful enforcer who used brutal tactics–such as Saddam Hussein–the nation is not able to govern itself or meet the needs of the people.  In no way am I desiring a tyrant to gain control in Iraq.  Instead let of us agree the aspirations of the people in Iraq need to be recognized and perhaps the best route to meet that goal is to again look at the separation idea that Biden advocated almost  a decade ago.
