The fracturing of Iraq was always one of the primary concerns of the Coalition during both Gulf Wars.  The US under Bush spent a great deal of blood and treasure trying to prevent this, and this was one of the many foreign policy decisions that Bob Gates said Joe Biden was on the wrong side of over a forty year career. 

This is the worst possible case, and things get a lot worse from here, because Turkey is not going to stand for an independent Kurdish State.

Who gets their hands on a nuke first?

 Turkey, which is a partner of the US-led coalition against Iran along with Israel, possesses some 90 thermonuclear B61 bunker buster bombs at the NATO Incirlik nuclear air base. They are safe and under guard.While Germany is not categorized officially as a nuclear power, it produces nuclear warheads for the French Navy.
