And the Kurds are getting greedy. Not a good sign. Link below; my emphasis.

"A Sunni Arab faction suspended participation Wednesday in the crafting of Iraq's constitution and a Kurdish bloc asserted claim to hundreds of square miles of more territory stretching south of Baghdad. The two moves presented fresh challenges to efforts to draft a document that proponents hope will help bring order to the chaotic country."

"In recent months, Kurdish security forces have abducted hundreds of Arabs and members of the Turkmen minority in the city of Kirkuk and taken them to prisons in the Kurdish zone, according to U.S. government documents and interviews with families of the victims. Kurds hope to make the city and its reserves of petroleum part of an autonomous Kurdistan."

Thier words, your link,,,,

"
Division remained, too, on seemingly small issues such as the country's official name.

"Federal and Islamic Republic of Iraq," Hammoudi, a member of the strongly religious Shiite Muslim coalition now leading Iraq, told reporters Wednesday.

"Federal Republic of Iraq," said Saadi Barzanchani, a member of Iraq's largely secular Kurdish minority and a committee member. "Once you say that a state is Islamic, you say that a state should pray, perform the hajj," Barzanchani said, referring to a pilgrimage to Mecca.

And exactly what values are those, Steve? The Kurds have claimed thousands of miles of Iraq that the Shiites and Sunnis also claim. If you find that a good thing, I find you wierd or dumb.

If you don't see the difference in a Federal Republic and/or an Islamic Republic, you are for sure smoking something wierd.

I see that you missed the point, maybe instead of just insulting, and taking a second or two to actually read the quote you would have seen that the Kurds are asking for Religious freedom, something the founding fathers of this country fought a long battle to be free of.....

but then again maybe you and your liberal buddies are sniffing to much glue to pay attention during your grade school history class....

And that the Bush Bunch would take away from us, along with our right to privacy. If you'll look back two years, you'll see that Iraqis of all religions were free to practice their religion as they saw fit under Saddam. It's only been since Bush invaded the country that there's been any question about religion in the political domain. Women have been allowed to attend school, hold jobs, not cover their faces under Saddam's rule. If this bunch turns to an Islamic nation, it's questionable if any of those things will be allowed.

but then again maybe you and your liberal buddies are sniffing to much glue to pay attention during your grade school history class....

At least I know a bit of history. Here are some links that others might be interested in:
