Iraq has three distinct "zones". The Kurds are in the north, the Shia are in the south and the Sunni are in the center. These people do not get along by any stretch of the imagination. So maybe we should just break the country up, yugoslavia-style. Afterall Iraq as it is presently is based on arbitrary lines the British drew in the sand, so why are we still sticking to that? If Iraq stays the way it is there will be a good chance of a civil war, and in the end one group will start oppressing the other again. Why are we willing to risk genocide to keep some completely made-up boundries the same?
