Judge Napolitano: I Would Advise Obama “To Do Nothing About Iraq”

JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: If I were advising the president, I would advise him to do nothing about Iraq. But basically he’s attempting to affect the outcome of ancient religious rivalries between the Shia, the Sunni and the Kurds. The very people shooting at Prime Minister Maliki are the people who ran the government in the Saddam Hussein era. I have never agreed with Joe Biden in my life, but in this respect, the Vice President, in my view, presents a very, very sound solution.

You have three competing forces that have been fighting each other for a thousand years. Give each of them the homeland they want and they will be at peace. The problem with Iraq came about when the British cobbled it together as one country even though it represents three vastly different cultures, Shia, Sunni and Kurd.
