Default Re: Understand IRAQ: The ISG Report

This strikes me as a report that will most likely be published in no more than 20 years. Not knowing enough about political science, or even about general world issues, I think I'd be lost on it right now. I like your synopsis though.

I think that I agree with you here, even though I don't know that much about the situation. It seems to me that without this one dictator looking over everything, the smaller sects are more free to make decisions on their own, and, almost naturally, they would not agree with each other.
