THERE IS NO IRAQ:

Kurds 're-energize' independence referendum plan for post-jihadist Iraq (Maher Chmaytelli, 4/06/17, Reuters)

Iraq's Kurds plan to hold a referendum on independence this year to press their case for "the best deal" on self-determination once Islamic State is defeated, a senior Kurdish official said.

The Kurds already run their own autonomous region in northern Iraq and the official, Hoshiyar Zebari, indicated the expected 'yes' outcome in a vote wouldn't mean automatically declaring independence.
