Iraq. US Study 665,0000 Iraqis died.

There are two very important news related to Iraq which catch my immediate attention which clearly shows US military and political defeat. The military Army chief of staff, Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker issued a statement that US troops will stay in Iraq until 2010 without any reduction in number of troops.
The other news is more interesting as the puppet Iraqi Parliament approved a law which would allow the country’s 18 provinces to hold referendums to merge themselves into larger federal regions with a measure of self-government. All 138 lawmakers present approved the law – in a vote broadcast live on state television – giving the bill’s supporters the barest possible majority of the total 275 members of the house.
The statement of Army Chief of Staff is acknowledgement of growing Iraqi Resistance against occupation and the difficulties they are facing to keep Iraq under occupation.
The autonomous regions law will cause more problems within Iraq instead of creating stability. The Kurds who wants to establish independent Kurdish state in the region are the constant problem for Iran, Iraq, Turkey and maybe if Kurds get the momentum and US support than Syrian Kurds will join the movement. The problem is that Iran Turkey and Syria will make sure that this will not become reality.
This will flame violence beyond Bush regime imagination where all the different ethnic groups will be fighting to keep the control of Oil rich provinces in South and North. The present situation in Nothern Kurds areas are relatively calm as compared to Al Anbar province and Southern Shias dominated Iraq. The Kurds will face a fierce resistance from Turkomen who also are living in that region from very long time. The Sunni Shias violence will get worst. The possible alliances which could build are likely between Sunni Resistance and Turkomen who will be fighting seperatists Kurds and Shias with the help of Turkey and Syria and maybe Iran.
According to independent Study 655,000 Iraqis died as a result of Bush illegal criminal invasion of Iraq.
