ONE MONTH LATER, IRAQ HAS NOT IMPLODED

I was going though my Evernote clippings and came across this:
Iraq disintegrating as insurgents advance toward capital; Kurds seize Kirkuk
The Washington Post
BY LOVEDAY MORRIS AND LIZ SLY June 13 at 4:34 AM 
IRBIL, Iraq — Iraq was on the brink of falling apart Thursday as al-Qaeda renegades asserted their authority over Sunni areas in the north, Kurds seized control of the city of Kirkuk and the Shiite-led government appealed for volunteers to help defend its shrinking domain.
