Readjusted borders

I saw this at the Map Room (great blog if you are interested in Maps and/or geography, btw); the Armed Forces Journal has a pair of maps accompanying the article Blood borders (June 2006) that reflect both the official political borders of the Middle East, the ones you'd see on any published map, and proposed borders to right some of the wrongs as imposed by "self-interested Europeans."

The article is an interesting read, too, and suggests that a radical reorganization of the borders might help to bring more stability to the region.
