Hi

Josh Cohen in a commentary suggested that to sort the problem in Iraq the 
Sunnis should be given there own independent state.

This is a naïve suggestion. It assumes that the powers involved are rational 
and are concerned with achieving a rational solution to the problem. The 
problem exists because of the intervention by the actors concerned. Generally 
these actors function in order to pursue their own venal interests ultimately 
based on profit.

Despite this it is true that US imperialism is a principal cause of the 
instability there. However this is not to deny the reactionary character of the 
other actors.

Those making this suggestion are promoting capitalism by misrepresenting it's 
nature presenting it as rational.

Take Care
