A united Iraq – an impossible dream
Khatab Sabir, our MPhil student whom I mentioned a couple of posts ago, has just published his assessment of the current situation in Iraq on the eJournal On Line Opinion. As the following provocative quote shows, he considers Iraq to be essentially a failed imagined community which is not worth salvaging.
When discussing Iraq the first question we must ask is whether there is such thing in reality as “Iraq” or is it a fantasy. The US occupation cannot be understood without knowing the history to Iraq’s creation and who engineered this failed project.
