ICG Report on Iraq on the brink of sectarian war

An interesting background report with, as so often with the ICG, totally inept conclusions. Indeed the recommendations are so old hat as to be positively useless. The old cry for a "government of national unity" will do nothing to help solve Iraq's problems. But reinforced federalism may do some good, particularly if it reduces centralised control of oil resources and deals swiftly with divisive issues like that of the status of Kirkuk (giving Kirkuk to the Kurds I would suggest). The ICG report is, all in all, staggeriungly dissapointing. A shallow answer to a comnplex and urgent problem.
