A couple of columns worth reading

Ralph Peters takes a critical look at Turkey in USA Today. With the exception of his last point, I think that this is right (Woo-hoo, what an endorsement!).

In the NY Times, Peter Galbraith opines on the idea of partitioning Iraq. This seems like a very tough decision (?) to me. I find myself vacillating on it maddeningly. I'm starting to think that breaking up of Iraq might be better for the region than for Iraq itself. When I say that, I understand that the result could be regional instability. The Kurds might well become more of problem for Turkey (as well as Iran and Syria) if they start to see hope for Kurdish homeland. It's certainly an idea worth considering.
