Kurdistan is very autonomous. The Kurds are in a very good position to form with the Sunni the counterpoise that Iraq needs to it's Shiite majority. That they have been spared the devastation of the civil wars going on in the rest of Iraq will put them in a strong position as those civil wars grind down to a conclusion (which will happen after the US finally stops ensuring that no one can win the civil wars). Kurdistan does not need any neoconservative delusions inflicted upon it. Nor does it need to be an "independent" threat that will bring upon itself war with Turkey or Iran. Things are working just fine for the Kurds of Iraq. Probably best to keep on doing what is working. Pragmatism has a big advantage over ideology as a basis for any endeavor. It works.
