Baghdad bantustans?
The U.S. military builds a wall to separate the Sunni and Shia in Baghdad.
Several residents interviewed likened the project to the massive barriers built by Israel around some Palestinian zones.

"Are we in the West Bank?" asked Abu Qusay, 48, a pharmacist who said that he wouldn't be able to get to his favorite kebab restaurant in Adhamiya.

Residents complained that Baghdad already has been dissected by hundreds of barriers that cause daily traffic snarls.
Yep. There's a good idea. Make Baghdad more like the West Bank. That ought to win hearts and minds...
