Aftermath of Saddam Hussein's death

January 2, 2007 12:11am CST
With the recently concluded execution of Saddam there many speculations about the future of Iraq. One example is, with the death of the dictator there's a great possibility that Iraq will be divided into two new nation-states. One for region for Sunni's, One region for Shiite's and one region for the Kurds. However, this change will not be easy. Personally, I see that Iraq is heading with an all out civil war and it seems even the United States of America will not be able to prevent it. Also, the United Nations will not be able to prevent the upcoming civil war in Iraq because of growing nationalism amongst nations witin Iraq's borders. If ever, will be divided among three (3) separate nation-states this will alter the balance of power not only in the Middle East region but also the world.

I think Iraq is screwed. There is defiantly a civil war looming in their future because of all the religious disagreement between the different sects of muslins. In my opinion, Iraq would of been better if the US hadn't openly interfered, i mean couldn't bush have sent an assassination team or something to quietly remove Saddam from power? That would of been a lot better and cost effective than waging a full out war.

Firstly I would not think that Saddam Hussain was a dictator as he was elected with 99%of the votes and became the president.I think that Iraq is not going to be divided into parts as Shite's are dominating there and at present they are in the rule..
