Not So Great Britain

US scholars propose a divided Iraq | July 6, 2007

With US war policy clouded by failures, two American scholars have proposed a partition plan that would divide Iraq into three main regions. The authors, Edward P. Joseph of Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and Michael O’Hanlon, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, are hoping to draw the attention of George W. Bush administration policymakers.

The three main spheres proposed in the report would be Shia, Sunni and Kurdistan. Iraqi Kurds already control Kurdistan.

The scholars are circulating their suggestions within the Bush administration, AP reported.
