The Suicide State

What is it about the Iraqis that make them prone to commit suicide on a national level? The Kurds have the only really stable, secure area in Iraq. With their oil resources, they have prospered.

But no, that's not good enough for them. The Kurds are provoking both Turkey and Iran with cross-border raids.

Nobody seems to be wondering if the Kurds' guerrilla attacks into Iran are provoking the Iranians to supply the Shiites in Iraq. The Iranians sure as hell believe that the Bush Administration is behind the attacks. They probably have some justification for that, which means that the Bush Administration's determination to "fight terrorists" does not apply to their pet terrorists.

What happens if the Turks and Iranians decide they have a common interest and then decide to act in concert to deal with the Kurds?
