I guess Shiite happens, huh? Sorry had to say it.
I think the problem, other than the "wording", is that the Shiite are objecting to an autonomous Kurd (Kurdistan, comes to mind) or Kurdish
I would not doubt an Iran and/or Turkish influence in this either. Respectfully, Iran, Turkey, Russia, Syria, Armenia, and even Iraq, don't want to
entirely see an autonomous Kurdish state.
What needs to be watched is the Shiite leader, Sistani. I guess it would be safe to presume that if the Shiites cannot become autonomous that they
feel the Kurds shouldn't either. Its a unified Iraq or no signing.....methinks. Bosnia all over again, maybe?
