    I am not an "expert" but have recently taken a class in Middle Eastern politics, as well as having read a number of books on the subject.

    While your intent is to get our tropps out of the area, doing what you suggest would have the exact opposite effect.

    Again, I ask you to read up on the area before you make assertions of "common sense."  

    I may not have been a Marine sqaudleader, but I do know that doing what you propose is sure to leave our guys there to die for eternity.

    Just, please, use some "common sense" and read about the history and current political situation of the Kurds.

    No one is unilaterally ruling out the Kurds oneday having their own state, what is being ruled out is the United States creating that nation (Iraq was created by the British, and look what a great job they did.)
