A new middle East?

General Wesley Clark talking about the government plans to invade 7 countries in 5 years before 9/11

They seemingly wanted to re-divided the middle east up into more stable countries. Not a bad idea in some ways. Much of the trouble in the middle east involves people being ruled people they don't want to be ruled by. eg the Kurds and Palestinians. But not sure how easily a foreign power can do that if it all. Here is the map.

Right. Because foreign powers carving up the Middle East into the shape that makes sense to them has such a fantastic track-record.

Isn't there an old proverb about those who fail to learn from history...?
