Booed by who? USA or the people who live there?
World leaders. Whenever there’s a “sectioning” of an existing nation or alliance, it seems like the “world community” rises up to oppose it. Iraq’s one example. The Basques. “They” would have loved to keep Yugoslavia and Czechslovakia together if they could. Brexit.
I’ve never been able to figure this out. It doesn’t seem surprising to me that people want to form nations and be governed by their own ethnic group.
The EU, of course, is an attempt to impose a supranational governance framework that stabilises borders. I wonder whether the only stable way forward for the M.E. is something similar.
Well, considering the various tribes, ethnicities, and religious sub groups (not thinking here of Muslim-Christian, but Muslim subgroups) don’t trust one another and often hate one another…..unlikely in our lifetimes.
