Gen. Hayden: The state of Iraq is gone

The country of Iraq is, for all intents and purposes, dead and has been replaced by three successor states, former CIA director Gen. Michael Hayden told Newmax TV Wednesday.

"The state of Iraq as we know it is gone, and it's not going to be reconstituted," he told "The Steve Malzberg Show. It's certainly not going to be reconstituted by [Prime Minister] Nouri al-Maliki." [...]

"We've got three successor states there now," Hayden, a retired four star Air Force general added. "As much as we might look for opportunities to keep Iraq together, we need to be prepared for the reality that it's not going to stay together.

"We should snuggle up comfortable with the Kurds in Kurdistan, who have always been pro-American and actually have a functioning society and state right now," Hayden said.


Jeremiah prophesied that a nation to the north of the land of Babylon, ruled by the "kings of the Medes", the modern day Kurds, would go to war with the Chaldeans, defeat them, and plunder their treasures.  With Kurdistan on the verge of declaring independence, it looks like this scenario is even more possible today.
