Absoultely

Well said.

And secession is the solution For the U.S. as well. The U.S. government can't stand with the federal government ignoring the Constitution. The limited powers in the Constitution aren't 'just because'. It's so that unilateral solutions don't put people at odds.

Most issues are regional. The Constitution demands that the feds have no authority in most matters. Leaving them up to states prevents inter regional and inter cultural conflict. Federal solutions force conflict.

Unfortunately the feds will not go back into the Constitutional box. So as you say since war in an absolute practical and moral catastrophe, secession is the solution.

I lived in Kiev.

I lived in Kiev. There was a clear divide between pro Russian-spoke Russian -concentrated in the East and pro Ukrainian nationalist - spoke Ukrainian. Are you against an internationally supervised fair election on secession in Crimea or eastern provinces?

mutual consent

Mutual consent is the right principle and it underpins secession.

Iraq with it's present

Iraq with it's present borders was British created. The different ethnic groups within it's borders had no say when the state of Iraq was created after WWI.
