Since that is a powder keg, I imagine we'll be in Iraq for awhile yet.

Not everyone likes liberty. Not everyone shares the same views on freedom as us westerners.

I believe that to be inevitable. The place is a mess when a superpower has been there for three years. I doubt the people of Iraq could keep better order than we could.

Are you saying that the Kurds shouldn't be independant, and just have rights in a country other ethnic groups?

Women's rights are an even more lost cause in Iraq. That region of the world has shown few signs of wanting to reform within this past century. Changing it now on top of everything else sounds like an even more lost cause.
