War of independence and strengthening strategic partnerships
The majority of Kurds aspire for an independent Kurdistan, but Kurdish leaders are careful to distinguish this as a long term goal from current political realities. If uniting Iraq fails, then the U.S. must plan for the strong possibility of the Kurds declaring independence. The U.S. cannot deny that a Kurdish pursuit of independence is urgent. If a unified Iraq does not materialize, the precedence has been established for the Kurds to claim their independence.
Many challenges face the Iraq due to its geography and the legacy of the former regimes after decades of wars and international isolation. I believe , that the Kurds should make a move , and build national, regional and international coalition against the Policies of the Iraqi Government ,a coalition to redirect the government system of Iraq , and building the country principles of democracy , justice , federalism. War of Kurd Independence be- gins and ends in Baghdad, not in Washington or Ankara, and the time has come to begin the Kurds set and send the real and Powerful Politicians to Bagdad , to represent the Kurdish People , and challenge and not let some groups control the Central government , and misuse the government authorities for ethnic and personal interests any more .The Kurd determination to honor the memory and sacrifices of the Kurdish civilians those killed in Halabcha ,Barzan , Bahdinan ,and during the periods of the struggle history of the Kurdish People, by strengthening KRG institutions, and social Justice , building a strong Financial and government System, that we can face financial challenges coming from Baghdad, and the other Regional and the International political challenges.
Also strengthening our joint long-term strategic partnerships , with US ,Turkey ,and Iran, across the fields, including security, diplomacy, trade, education, energy, culture, science, and justice.In the 2005 draft Constitution establishes a federal central government and regional governments as a form of shared rule and selfrule. The Constitution contains articles the new government will have to come to terms with its Armed Forces and the use of militias. The successful federalism to a country lacking in a democratic tradition, with strong ethnic and religious divisions, is an enormous challenge. The uniting Iraqi and the federation must be voluntary and not imposed by the U.S. or any other outside power. A federal Iraq must be democratic. Constructive relations based on mutual trust and recognition must be built among all ethnic groups. The Kurdish leaders have been active in this process, advocating their own interests while building open and fair Iraqi institutions.
An independent Iraqi Kurdistan has external and internal challenges to overcome. The KRG have to assure the neighbor countries ,Turkey, Iran, and Syria that they would guarantee the Kurdish populations in their own countries will not rebel. The Kurds would have to make concessions on the status of Kirkuk. A power sharing arrangement by all ethnic groups for Kirkuk may be acceptable to Turkey and other ethnic groups. An independent Iraqi Kurdistan would have to overcome its landlocked situation and develop an economic base. Perhaps the largest challenge for successful independence facing the Kurds, are the internal divisions amongst its own people. For Kurdistan independence to succeed, the Kurds need to address Turkey’s concerns on the PKK . Already some groundwork has begun. Turkey has started to work more closely with the KRG and has promoted Turkish business in Iraqi Kurdistan.
