Many people blame Kurds for trying to break away from Iraq.. If you think about it in a little detail, you will realise that it is Iraqis who are responsible for the "unity of Iraq".
People like, Al-Sistani or Muqtada Sader (with no political educations), send harsh messages over Iraq's unity. Many Iraqis don't even understand the word "Federalism".. These political terms must be explained to Iraqis.
Look it in this way, now the Kurds have made it clear; "YOU IRAQIS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR IRAQ'S UNITY. ACCEPT A FEDERAL KURDISH STATE WITHIN IRAQ OR FACE AN INDEPENDENT KURDISH STATE".
The above sentences is nothing to do with sepatarism or anything else. It is about self-determination-rights. The Kurds are distinct people from Arabs and they should live the way they want to, not the way the Iraqis want to.
I am not very happy or sad with the recent Iraqi constitutions. Though it is temporary, it has some guarantees for the Kurdish-self-determination-rights. I am happy with the guarantees, but sad with it being temporary and the postponement of Kirkuk's issue.
It took two or three days for Al-Sistani, to understand what "federalism" means. I am still suspicious about what will happen in 2 years time. The Kirkuk issue is a big challenge and Kurds will not give up easily on it.
