Petraeus, Zakheim and Barzani – Laying the Groundwork for a Bigger and More Corrupt Kurdistan at the Sulaimani Forum

by Scott Creighton

As of late we’ve been hearing a lot about the possibility of creating a new Kurdistan by expanding the “de facto” Iraqi Kurdistan into other people’s nations, namely Syria and Turkey (both being equally demonized in the press )

Saudi police opened fire Thursday to disperse a protest in the section where minority Shiites live, leaving at least one man injured, as the government toughened its efforts to prevent a wave of unrest sweeping the Arab world from reaching the kingdom.

The rare violence raised concern about a crackdown ahead of planned protests after Friday prayers in different cities throughout the oil-rich kingdom. Violence there could reverberate through the world’s markets because of the importance of Saudi oil exports.
