Regime change WILL come. The government is hated by the majority of the population. The next time that protests develop, you will see the regime unable to quench them. Then, at last, the tyrants will get what they deserve: The rope for all of them. Their time is coming.

Shiite, Sunni, and Kurd are more adequate identifiers for the main actors, each of them also devolving into various factions and subgroups. None of the states are particularly stable with regime change in both Iran and Saudi Arabia more likely than not in medium to long-term — 20 to 50 years or thereabouts. The Shia/Sunni conflict is intractable, messy, and rudderless. For those reasons, any many others, a Free Kurdistan with ample support to provide secure borders and a modernizing society, would be a significant buffer between contending parties, an example as well. A Free Kurdistan that is home to the long afflicted Kurdish people should also be a new homeland for other persecuted minorities in the region and in its earliest stages a law and order regime with a mandate for national and internal security first and foremost should lead the way before giving way to free and fair elections and a parliamentary system. There’s no other way when the nation-states of Iraq and Syria can’t be reconstituted as they once were. It’s not one or the other; separation and consolidation of people and territories should be determined through planning, negotiation, and dialogue or we invite continued chaos, anarchy, and bloodshed.

This translates to operation of unintelligent systems that abuse powers to feed themselves and the few industries that lobby for them.

How about not fu*king with Iran? Our (USA) CIA admitted helping coup their PM, so no wonder they hate the USA!

How about reaching out to them is an honest way to start a new relationship? Would there be too much fear and pride to swallow for that to happen? It would take a courageous leader on both sides.
