    By "concept" you mean meddling with Internal Affairs of independent countries on false pretext?

    What I mean is stop trying to keep a nation state intact that was created with no regard for religious, ethnic and tribal relations and cohesion. Clearly whatever lines they drew post-Ottomans are not working out. Let's just leave it alone, and let the process of nation forming take the next step. Kurdistan seems like a no-brainer.

    Go back to that map I posted, you have to redraw all of the Gulf states. Good luck. Best bet would be to let them Balkanize.

    To make mistakes is human. To blame someone else for your mistake, is strategic.

    All those gulf states were once drawn to begin with. But yeh, I'm leaning more towards Balkanisation. Let it all fall apart.

    Quantus has withdrawn civilian flights from over Iraq citing islamist threats , B/A is not , they say its safe , I hope those words dont come back to bite them on the arse if another flight is shot down .

    FAA restricts flights over Iraq | Travel - KCCI Home

    The FAA has issued a NOTAM regarding flight over Iraq as well. Hopefully won't get a repeat of Ukraine.
