Iraq's Unraveling Continues

If any of us thought the Kurdish Regional Government was going to knuckle under to Mr. al-Maliki in Baghdad, better guess again. Kurds Defy Baghdad, Laying Claim to Land and Oil -

Combine this with the ramping up of violence in the provinces disputed by the KRG and Baghdad, and it's obvious that (1) Iraq is light-years from any kind of reconciliation, and (2) the Obama White House is going to be on the hot-seat as more withdrawal deadlines approach. This is not going to go away unless "Iraq" can impose its will on "Kurdistan" - or have that will imposed for it by an outside party.
