ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to the political division of Iraq. The country is set to be divided into Kurd, Shia, and Sunni areas. After the Iraq War, the U.S. failed to establish an Iraqi government that could bring together the various ethnic groups in the country. A civil war broke out in the country after several Shiites including cleric Ayatollah Mohammed Baqir al-Hakim were killed in a bombing in Najaf, Iraq on August 29, 2003.
