Reading this article brings up the idea that the partitioning may lead to further Balkanization into more than three countries.
More recently, Simon Jenkins of The Times of London advocated partition as the last best chance for a minimally decent Western withdrawal. In a May 2006 op-ed titled, "The fantasy is over, we must partition Iraq and get out now," he wrote:
In much of Iraq everything points to a looming conflict between Shi'ites and Sunnis. To all who know these people, this is an utter tragedy, brought on by the coalition's continued presence and its failure to establish order. All recent experience of such conflict, whether in Ulster, Palestine, Sudan or Yugoslavia, sees it resolved into population movement and ethnic cleansing. This is now proceeding bloodily in and round Baghdad. It will bring an awful residue of ghost districts, refugee camps, revenge attacks and safe havens.
In Yugoslavia the solution, abetted by western intervention, was partition. In Iraq America began the same process by guaranteeing de facto autonomy to Kurdistan. That logic must now be followed to its conclusion.
Hey Hey Let's Go! kenka suru
Taisetsu na mono protect my balls!
Boku ga warui so let's fighting
Let's fighting love...
Let's fighting love...
Oh no, we can't deport 12 million people! It's too many.
Kyle Busch was out of control and all over that track on Sunday. He was shaky and jumpy and dangerous...and he caused that big wreck on the last lap. He's not a rook anymore. He doesn't have a damned excuse. He needs to pull in his horns and learn to drive at a plate race.***
Of course, the media will give him a pass.
If it had been Carl Edwards, we'd be hearing talk about how he needed to learn to be more patient... Hey, media types...I'm waiting for a story that calls for Kyle Busch to learn patience... ... ... Hmmm, guess I'll be waiting awhile.
Scattershotting here...By the same reasoning that marks Toyota as a foreign automaker, shouldn't we call Dodge a foreign automaker too?***
They are foreign owned.
Where do you think the Daimler part of Daimler-Chrysler is based?
Those Toyotas are made in the USA as Daryl Waltrip pointed out a time or two during Sunday's broadcast.
NASCAR heartthrob Kasey Kahne was announced as the latest addition to the Gillette Young Guns, joining Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Jamie McMurray, Ryan Newman and Jimmie Johnson.***
...Guess this means, he finally started shaving.
The team ran into misfortune on lap 185 of the 200-lap race, as Blaney dove down pit road to avoid an accident on the frontstretch. With a flat right-front tire, he was unable to avoid making contact with several cars as he exited pit road.***
After making a lap around the track, he headed back to pit road for four fresh tires and to give the Caterpillar team the opportunity to review any damage the contact may have made.
Unfortunately, NASCAR officials were none too pleased with the speed the Caterpillar Toyota reached on pit lane while trying to avoid the accident, and after first assessing the team a five lap penalty, they then decided to send the No. 22 to the garage for the remainder of the race. Blaney was credited with a 34th-place finish.
Girl you know its true...
Oooh, oooh, oooh, I love you...
"During preparations for the 2007 season and especially the 2007 Daytona 500, I specifically requested that our competition teams not disrespect NASCAR, our competitors or our sponsors by blatantly circumventing the rules, Waltrip said. "This is not the action of an organization, a manufacturer or a sponsor. This was an independent act done without consent or authorization from me or any of my executive management team.
"As an owner, I realize I am ultimately held responsible for the actions of my employees. Therefore, I accept the penalties issued tonight by NASCAR."
"No. I talked with John Darby a little bit last night and the only thing that I kind of want to make clear is an infraction last year that somebody got suspended for, no points was 10 times graver infraction than this was.
