Time to shorten our lines

The Saudis are right Iraq's headed for disintegration and civil war. The fundamental problem is we're trying to reimpose the artificial borders of a "nation" created by Turkish and British colonial authorities for their own geopolitical objectives.

What we're doing in Iraq is the mideast version of the disasterous results of the Versailles Conference.

Iraq today is Viet Nam all over again.

When will we ever learn our very successful federal political system isn't possible everywhere?
