This is an interesting article concerning Kurdish independence... While the author Christian Caryl recognizes the desire of the Kurd's to enjoy independence, this individual declares at the end that the time is not yet...

I agree with the author's final assessment as it concerns this topic... It is not time for this occur, and will not be allowed for the time being... A unified Iraq will occur for the time being, and a forced peace between the Shia's, Sunni's, and Kurd's will be enforced until a future in which we could very well see a 3 way break up of Iraq, and the independence these 3 factions seek...

Maybe this breakup will transpire beginning in 7 years?... We shall see, but in the mean time unity among them is desired by the "powers that be."... All will occur in God's perfect timing of course... The link to the article is below...
