Edward P. Joseph of Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and Michael O’Hanlon, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution have presented a paper dealing with the soft-partition of Iraq.

A report to Congress from General David Petraeus on the progress of the current troop surge strategy is expected on September 15.

In favor of partition is Shiite Abdul-Aziz Al Hakim of the Supreme Islamic Council, who has called for a Shiite region for years. Opposing partition are the major Sunni politicians as well as Shiite Moqtada Al Sadr.
