      It's not a better one. It's just as bad, except for different reasons.

      It'll just start the Civil War quicker, and ensure Turkey is involved too.

      Thinking outside the box is all well and good, but you seem to think a "different solution" is obviously going to be "better".

      This one won't be. It'd be worse, I think, because in addition to an unstable and violent Iraq, we'd drag Turkey into it as well. Better to withdraw entirely and let the Iraqis fight it out then force Turkey into civil war as well.
