Return to Iraq? Amid Calls for Unity, US Ponders Size of Operation (part 2)

It's been more than two weeks since Iraq's second city of Mosul fell. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has been widening its web from points north of Baghdad all the way to Syria's border with Jordan. The US is pondering air strikes, but not until it tries to keep the country from breaking up, with Secretary of State John Kerry in Erbil this Tuesday to convince the Kurds to back a unity government. Can Iraq keep it together?
