: I've heard that Turkey will be getting northwest Iraq for its involvement in the upcoming "war." The Kurds will be getting northeast Iraq, & the US will be occupying the rest of Iraq (which will become 2 other states - a southern state around Basrah & middle state around Baghdad - this is what Israel wants, too). Then, the US will find a reason to continue its circle around China...
xxx I think that the right wing Israeli gov't wants Iraq to be fragmented into 3 states in the future, b/c this will effectively strip away any power a future governing entity in Iraq would have - a fragmented Iraq loses its economic clout... thus giving the Israeli government the military leverage it needs to continue to expand - Israel wants to remove the "challenge" it sees in, not only a unified Arab world, but in Saddam or any future Iraqi government as well.
