Partitioning Iraq: Should Iraq be partitioned into three autonomous sectarian regions?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • No, it would start a civil war.

    No, Iraq should not be partitioned into three autonomous sectarian regions, because Iraq has been very peaceful for a while now, and there is not reason to change that. Trying to partition Iraq would likely send it into civil war, because there is widespread disagreement as to whether the partition is a good idea.

  • Partitioning would increase violence

    The Muslim sects battling for control of Iraq would not cease their fighting just because a government authority partitions the land. Territory is not the only thing causing the conflict, and culture clash and infighting might even intensify if border struggles and resource battles were piled on top of the existing secular struggle.
