– IRAQ’S PARTITION “MIGHT BE THE ONLY WAY”
* General Raymond Odierno The U.S. Army’s outgoing chief of staff. who once served as the top U.S. commander in Iraq and retires Friday 08/13/2015 after nearly 40 years in uniform, warned, during his final press conference at the Pentagon on Wednesday 08/11/2015, that reconciliation between Shiites and Sunnis in Iraq is becoming harder and that partitioning the country “ might be the only solution.”
Asked if he saw any possibility of reconciliation between the two, Odierno said “It’s becoming more difficult by the day” and pointed to a future in which “Iraq might not look like it did in the past…I think that is for the region and politicians to figure out, diplomats to figure out how to work this, but that is something that could happen…It might be the only solution but I’m not ready to say that yet.”
Odierno’s comment totally rejected by Iraqi senior politicians and country’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi although his government is ruling only the Shiite provinces of Iraq, about 40% of the country. the rest is controlled or by the Sunni Islamic State or by the Kurdish forces.
