Failed States, Syria and Iraq

Iraq and Syria may have been permanently torn apart by war and sectarian tensions, the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency said on Thursday, and many in those countries no longer identify as Iraqis or Syrians, agreed the head of the CIA.

I really don't see why it would be a bad thing to break them up. Maybe there would be some underlying problems I haven't considered but I know the Kurds would much prefer their own state so they can rule themselves.

What bugs me is if they have been lying on intelligence reports about how effective we have been against ISIS. Things may be worse than we know.

Thoughts?

What bugs me is how annoying your "solutions" are. Just mind your own beeswax . Let the oil companies resolve this as Adam and Eve intended them to do.

I still haven't heard your solution.

Mine is give the Kurds their own country so they don't have to kiss Sunni or Shiite butt or Turkey butt for that matter. I doubt Syria or Iraq will ever be the same anyway. At least ISIS wouldn't control their country.

Problem is, Turkey is totally 110% opposed against a Kurdish state of any kind, because of the Kurdish minority they have on their territory.

Turkey (still) is a NATO country, yet they are not bombarding the very Kurds that had just been equipped and supported by America and other Western countries to fight ISIS.

It's really one big mess down there. Everybody against everybody, it seems.
