from The BRICS Post:
In a few weeks, the world will commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I – a conflict that eventually carved out the Middle East and Iraq’s current borders.
But with large swathes of Iraq falling under the control of a coalition of anti-government and extremist groups spearheaded by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), that same country is now facing the likelihood of Balkanization.
As Iraq’s army continues to withdraw and looks unlikely to be able to repel attacks without US support, ISIL has declared that it wants to establish a Sunni caliphate spanning Syria and Iraq (for starters) – effectively redefining the contours of the current two states.
