Strip of Iraq 'on the Verge of Exploding' | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Strip of Iraq 'on the Verge of Exploding'

Kurdish leaders have expanded their authority over a roughly 300-mile-long swath of territory beyond the borders of their autonomous region in northern Iraq, stationing thousands of soldiers in ethnically mixed areas in what Iraqi Arabs see as an encroachment on their homelands.

The assertion of greater Kurdish control, which has taken hold gradually since the war began and caused tens of thousands of Arabs to flee their homes, is viewed by Iraqi Arab and U.S. officials as a provocative and potentially destabilizing action.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could well be the next front in Iraq with which US forces will have to deal in the not too distant future.
