  •  My solution (none)
    Have the newly elected Iraqi government negotiate wit hthe insurgent political leadership, to descale the violence in exchange ofr a greater seat at the national political table.

    ie have the shiites give up some of that 60% majority to the sunnis, and also cede more autonomy to the Kurds.

    that's the play I expect to be called in the coming weeks and months. it MIGHT work.

    •  Yeah, and while your at it (none)
      how about talking Israel into negotiating with the Palestinians to descale the violence in exchange for a greater seat at the national political table? It is a lot easier for us to say such things here when we aren't involved in the situation.
