For statists and nation-builders there's the question of a Kurdish state.

After the fall of the Ottoman Empire, Britain and France have jointly managed to screw the Kurds completely. The Sykes-Picot agreement made sure that Kurds, a large ethnic group in the Middle East didn't have a country and was divided between Iran, Iraq and Turkey.

That evil policy was especially designed to provide years of instability and war in the region. Now, of course, the evil {!#%@} of the West; Britain, France, The US, and the various assorted Imperial lap dogs are still pursuing this policy, double crossing the Kurds who thought for a while that being a trusted allies of the West was a good thing.

I vote that the Kurds have a land of their own - Kurdistan, sandwiched between Mexico, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.

This nation building harmed more than just the Kurds. Shia and Sunni living in the same pretend nations has caused most of the strife in the region.

Perhaps if they gave Sheridan their hell, they could rent that region from him.
