My article in today's Iraq section in the Guardian.
The article has only been up for a few hours but from first impressions non-Iraqis seem to be dismissing it as nonsense and not even worth a try but Iraqis seem to be more enthusiastic and believe it makes sense. I am happy because at least its not the other way around.
Unfortunately many non-Iraqis still believe Biden's idea, of splitting up the country, is the number one solution for Iraq. No number of Iraqis screaming at them telling them it is an absurd idea will be enough for them. Cue the lame argument: Iraqis are monsters, they don't know whats best for them, and they need to live in human cages.
Hopefully time will prove them wrong.
The article has since been translated in Arabic and published in two independent Iraqi newspapers, Al-Aalem and Al-Mowaten.
