ABSTRACT
The author asserts that the world awaits a gathering of the Sunni and Shiite branches of the Islamic faith that may lead to a period of reduced conflict. He argues that the Kurd-administered provinces of northern Iraq provides a model of democratic governance and multicultural tolerance. He also asserts that the U.S. carries a responsibility for unleashing the maelstrom of sectarian conflict that threatens the entire Middle East region, as well observes that Kurdish independence is a reality.
