An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Iraq Could be Torn Apart!

There is evidence that Iraq may break up soon given the kind of violence going on there! This is just crazy specially after reading this report where it is clear that the basic reason for the US invasion was after all the Oil!

It is extremely sad that even today those with power feel no remorse at completely messing up any country and indeed a region and the lives of many poor people who are merely in a struggle to survive!

The secret National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq, the first in more than two years, said Iraqi-on-Iraqi violence now far outpaces the anti-US insurgency, according to an unclassified summary. It said there is only a fleeting opportunity over the next 12 to 18 months for the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and US forces to secure the population and craft a viable political settlement.

But all the efforts of US and Iraqi authorities could rapidly collapse following another "triggering" event like the Sunni attack on a Shi’ite Muslim shrine in February 2006 that set off the current cycle of sectarian violence, according to the published excerpts of the 90-page report.

A muchanticipated US intelligence report warned yesterday that the rising violence in Iraq could permanently tear the country apart and, in the worst case, create a state of anarchy with no legitimate authority that combines "extreme ethnosectarian violence with debilitating intragroup clashes."
