    Isn't it probably a "they need to compromise" situation?
    In forcing the referendum [on Kurdish independence], Barzani sought to rally Kurds around the flag – hoping to deflect attention away from the financial crisis in Kurdistan, accusations of corruption and criticism of his staying on as president beyond his legal term.

    But Kurdish over-reach has been met by a strong response from Iraq’s prime minister, Haider al-Abadi. He deployed federal forces to push the peshmerga out of Kirkuk. An Arab has been appointed by Baghdad as the acting governor. And Arabs and Turkmen are celebrating their victory.

    Long-term stability in Kirkuk, however, requires a political settlement. Now, more than ever, there is a need to negotiate the future of the disputed territories. It is time to revisit the idea of a special status for Kirkuk, with power-sharing between the different communities. The future of Kirkuk should be determined by politics and compromise – not by force.

    ISIS is messing with Kirkuk, so that's an issue too, and apparently the US opined on that: "The US and its coalition partners had warned Kurdistan’s President Masoud Barzani against holding the [independence] referendum, saying that pursuing independence would undermine the war Iraq was still fighting against [ISIS]. Washington has stressed it would like its allies in Iraq to work together against the militant group"

    considering that part of the world have been going at each other for the past 200 + years, Im not sure what the solution is
