I can't think of a title.
After all, you wouldn't trust an infantryman with power tools, would you?
Watching the news is really pissing me off. I watched this stupid report about the "Civil War in Iraq" complete with cheezy graphics which divide Iraq into three parts, each clearly labelled "Sunni", "Shia" and "Kurd" and the reporter was talking about them like each faction had their own territory.
Ummm. . . Ten minutes in Iraq would disabuse you of that notion. Shia and Sunni are not like Black and White, or even English and Scots. They are religious identifiers like Huegenot and Catholic. Each sect is scattered across Iraq and are (with the exception of specifically religious observation) more or less culturally identical. Kurds are an ethnic group, but there is no region inhabited by Kurds and only Kurds. There are Kurdish tribes which dominate particular areas, but there may be Turkoman or Arabic tribes within that region as well. If there were neat, clean little lines which could serve as boundaries along which you could deliniate into "Shia" and "Sunni" this would be a little easier. What you have instead is "Predominately Shia" and "Predominately Sunni". That's part of the complication. If you let the Shia run Shiastan then what do you do with the Sunni living there? Disenfranchise them? "Ethnically Cleanse" the area by running them out on a rail?
What about the real minorities: Assyrians, Chaldeans, Yezidis, Turkomans, Circassians, etc?
Frickin' stupid simplistic reporters. If the damned Iraqis can't manage themselves in the past 60 years, and the British couldn't manage them in 30 years, and the Ottomans couldn't figure out how to make those vilayets profitable in 500 years, then you aren't going to make it all make sense in a five minute spiel with cute graphics.
I hate the verdammt media with a passion. CNN is the worst, but all of them are basically vile charlatans who attempt to pass off a glib, superficial, and usually misleading summary accompanied some well-chosen stock footage as real war reporting.
