Who said I'm opposed to that? I'm not. .I think Kurdish autonomy is probably a damn good thing for instance. But the point was --- OUR idiots did all that to bring "democracy and inclusion" to MidEast. And that will NEVER happen, no matter how the borders change. It will be always be tyrants running theocratic crap holes that all want to kill each other. The problem with YOUR DESIRED plan is -- You separate them all in their own borders and the CONFLICTS will be get bigger and more severe. And pretty soon it will show down between Iran and the Saudis with everyone else looking for cover and picking sides. Anyways -- I would hope that we agree that the Libertarian commitment to not "redesign" the MidEast is something that we should agree on. I just don't know if I have the stomach to watch all the MEast Arabs unscrew themselves from those "imposed" borders.
