Israel inching towards recognizing Kurdistan, whether the White House likes it or not.

An independent Kurdish state is becoming more likely to happen all the time.

The Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, has voiced support for Kurdish statehood, taking a position that appears to clash with the US preference to keep sectarian war-torn Iraq united.

Pointing to the mayhem in Iraq, Netanyahu on Sunday called for the establishment of an independent Kurdistan as part of a broader alliance with moderate forces across the region…

I hope that the White House is prepared for the possibility. Because if it happens, it will happen fast.

    The old middle east borders date to, IIRC, 1914 .. fitting we should get new ones in 2014, no?
    Team Obama missed this … badly.

    This particular White House? Prepared on a foreign policy issue with national security implications? Maybe if it’s going help Obama’s golf game…….

    IF this administration is prepared for the possibility, it’ll be a first.

    Good! Partitioning Iraq was the one and only thing I have ever agreed with Biden on. At the time, I quietly backed down because everyone told me that this was such a stupid idea. Figured it must have been me. Should have had the courage to stick to my position.
