Soft Partition/Federalism etc.

Since I've been writing a lot on this topic, I thought it might be a good idea to collect the links in one place. I'll try to keep adding to this.

My AmSpec column on how the surge is paving for a soft partition the way by building up local institutions

A response to Jim Antle's skeptical take on the idea

Comments on the Biden amendment on the eve of its passage

My Brainwash column speculating that we'll soon be debating not whether to move in this direction, but rather how best to do it

A note that parliamentary pushback against devolution of their powers isn't too surprising

A response to reports of Iraqi opposition to partition, noting that the Iraqis don't seem to quite understand the plans being kicked around in Washington -- and that talk of such plans could conceivably scare politicians in Baghdad toward progress on national reconciliation.
