U.S. Senate Voting On Partitioning Iraq

According to this article, the U.S. Senate was to vote on a 'nonbinding Senate resolution ... (calling) for Iraq to be divided into federal regions under control of Kurds, Shiites and Sunnis in a power-sharing agreement similar to the one that ended the 1990s war in Bosnia. Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Del., was a prime sponsor of the measure.'

WTH? Who gave them that right? As my sister in law said, 'didn't know that the U.S. had added a 51st state.'

Partitioned into three zones? Three? Let's see. An Iranian dominated South, an American supported Kurdistan which will peck away at Turkey and Iran and continuing genocide of the Sunnis in Central Iraq.
Partitioning will confirm the death of Iraq.

yeah, it's a stupid proposition, and I don't think anyone in Iraq wishes for it, except for the Kurds perhaps.

It is stupid. Just like Invading Iraq was stupid.
Number of Operations Iraq Freedom and Enduring Freedom casualties
as confirmed by U.S. Central Command: 4230

I agree. This must be very frustrating for the people in Iraq and those who have loved ones there. It bothers me that we do not hear more of how the citizens of Iraq feel about these decisions that are being made.

A non-binding resolution is the kind of thing the US congress does when it has no power to enforce it's desires but wants to make a point, sort of like tossing a hornets nest into someone's tent to get their attention.
