Die Kritik der US-Botschaft am US-Senat ist völlig richtig und wird von vielen Irakis aus allen Teilen des Landes geteilt.
Die Irak-Politik des demokratisch dominierten US-Senats als kontraproduktiv zu bezeichnen, wäre ein reiner Euphemismus:
In view of the non-binding resolution concerning Iraq passed by the United States Senate on September 27, the Embassy wishes to make clear that it remains the firm policy of the American Administration to support a stable, secure, and unified Iraq.
Our goal in Iraq remains the same: a united, democratic, federal Iraq that can govern, defend, and sustain itself. Iraq’s leaders must and will take the lead in determining how to achieve these national aspirations.
As we have said in the past, attempts to partition or divide Iraq by intimidation, force or other means into three separate states would produce extraordinary suffering and bloodshed. The United States has made clear our strong opposition to such attempts.
The Iraqi people adopted a constitution in October 2005, which includes provision for possible expansion of federal structures in Iraq. Iraqis are now considering ways to amend that constitution, but partition is not on the table. The United States fully supports the Iraqis in their efforts to achieve peace and stability.
