  •  How do we help them? (none)
    We don't.  This situation must be solved by the Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds themselves.  Tryign to impsoe democracy in our style won't work at all.   These are three separate peoples, divided by religion, ethicnity, and tribal loyalties. If they cannot comet ogether, they have a right to live apart.

    The problem is, while theya re working thigns out, a lot of people will die.  It will be Yugosloavia all over again, with ehtnic cleansing and mass murders. And that is where we need to get the U.N. involved to keep order while they set up the systems of government they themselves prefer.  The Kurds already have an
    army and a primitive governement in place. The Shiites are faurly organized as well.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
