“The Bottom-Up Partition”

leave a comment »

Here is a good editorial about the Iraqi government.  I haven’t been keeping up on this stuff lately, so I have found this very enlightening.

What’s really happening is that Iraqis are slowly moving toward the solution their politicians first outlined in their constitution two years ago despite stiff American resistance. This is a loose confederation of at least three self-governing regions, each with its own government, courts and security forces; and a weak federal government whose main function will be redistributing oil revenue so that each region gets a share based roughly on its proportion of the population.
