I’m not talking about the way imperial Europe partitioned land, but with Sunni and Shi’ite leaders, as well as Kurdish, partition Iraq into a Shi’ite Iraq, Sunni Iraq, and a Kurdistan?

Ugh. Why did we go there? If we did split it, they’d probably eventually invade eachother

Why we went there isn’t important. The fact is we occupied a nation for 10 years now and propped up a government that is falling. Plus, an invasion between Iraqis is unlikely being that Sunni nations and Shi’ite nations aren’t currently at war with each other. If anything, Iran will annex Shi’ite Iraq.

Lol

LOL GOODBYE

What’s wrong with what I said? Literally no one has come forth and explain their view as to why this either a) won’t work or b) is a bad idea. All I’m getting is “LOL NOPE”

Because it is not America’s job, that attitude reeks of imperialism. Strong countries going in and partitioning the middle east after world war I is why the middle east is the mess that it is.

I’m definitely not arguing that, but the United States did occupy Iraq. Instead of drawing partitions along ethnic lines (unlike what WWI imperialists did), the US decided to nation build by putting two groups who hate each other (for 1500 years) in power together. Maliki promised a government that would respect the rights of Sunnis and shi’ites and that’s exactly what didn’t happen. He marginalized the Sunnis and didn’t include them in government as he promised. What’s wrong with partitioning the nation upon agreements by both religious groups and the Kurds so they are represented by a government body of their own choosing rather than a propped up government by a foreign western nation. Now ask yourself. What sounds more imperial?

Iraq might as well not even exist as a nation. Just let the tribes be.

That’s essentially what would happen I guess

My intro to law professor makes me think Chicago is the scummiest city in the nation

Wait, don’t you take classes here in Chicago?! That’s unheard of for a law prof from chitown to disagree with its policies! This man is amazing lol.

He works for a non profit that deals with police accountability. CPS doesn’t like him lol. I’m not sure if he agrees with policy there, but he’s clearly upset with the process. There’s an alderman that is illiterate.

LOL. More than one person has described Chicago that way, at least the famous Chicago “political machine.” I was born there, however, so it can’t be that bad of a city ;)

Note to tumblr friends. Justin runs the previewofthoughts blog and is one of the friendliest Catholics and bravest guys I know because if something is politically incorrect on Tumblr (meaning more conservative than liberal), he is not afraid to stand up to it. I like the sports stuff on Justin’s blog and political commentary—always helping me stay informed.

Haha thanks father angel.

I was under the impression that political machines were illegal or something. I still think Chicago has one and or people are incredibly apathetic and uninformed
