Skip to comments.Time for Britain to fix its mistake: how Kurdistan became part of Iraq

Kurdish journalist Noreldin Waisy explains why Britain should recognise an independent Kurdistan in the upcoming referendum
Relations between Kurdistan and Britain go back nearly a century. However, it is a tragic and sorrowful history. Kurds hold Great Britain, more than any other party, responsible for their inclusion in the state of Iraq.
We hope that the United Kingdom will support us: that you will correct an old, hoary mistake, when the better judgement of men such as Churchill was circumvented through determined bureaucratic manoeuvre.

I hate to have to say this, but Joe Biden was right about Iraq. Back in 2006 he said that the country should be broken up into a loose confederation of three states
In 2008 Biden and Obama took power, and they did nothing to move that idea along. But it was a good idea.
In 2008 the issue was settled. The ‘wrong war’ as Obama described it. Other fish to fry(Libya) as all hell broke loose. Kurdistan sounds like a good idea. Jordan, Egypt, are the others worth saving. Can Libya be turned around? It was quiet recently. Lebanon? Sure, just make it 80% Christian again.
I agree. The United States has assumed responsibility by blood and treasury so many imperial/colonial mistakes of former colonial powers such as GB,Spain and France. Isolationism,as President Washington warned and Paul and Buchanan reiterated, is mocked and now impossible. I would also say their Euro-crap caused both world wars. We can't change history but we sure are not learning lessons and paying for others mistakes as we foolishly make our own.
> we sure are not learning lessons <
Very true. LBJ did not learn from the mistakes of Korea, and from the French mistakes in Indochina. And George W. Bush did not learn from LBJ’s mistakes.
Which, in my opinion, makes George W. Bush the worst foreign-policy president in U.S. history. LBJ comes in second.
Isolationism as national policy became extinct on July 16th, 1945, based on events at the White Sands Proving Grounds in the NM desert.
