The Commissar on the division of Iraq

The de facto division of Iraq has started, as Sunnis and Shiites leave mixed areas for homogeneous areas. It hardly needs to be said the Kurdistan has, for all practical purposes, already separated itself. In looking at countrywide maps, the division of the remainder into Sunni and Shiite sections would seem fairly straightforward. It is in the cities, especially Baghdad with its mixed character and large population, where the division will be the most painful.
