==Situation: Iraq== 1. Announce a date to move all US soldiers to newly constructed Military bases in the region. These soldiers serve 2 purposes. (a) Air support and backup for the Iraqi Military in protecting their government and citizens from terrorists. (b) Protection to reconstruction efforts to the country. Iraq will have to police itself. American soldiers will not be patroling the streets. They will be monitoring the country and using force when requested by the Iraqi army. This strategy will save face for the administration by not pulling out of the country, and continuing to support the new gov't. It will save face to the congress who wants our troops out of the fight, and most importantly....it will save the lives of Americans. 2. Divide Iraq into 3 states, with equal revenue share of the oil, and equal say in the gov't policies. 3. Rebuild. Nothing will make these people love america more that restoring their country (even though we intitiated the destruction). Get the power and water running. Get the citizens involved in the reconstruction, give them jobs. Make the people feel as if they are the ones rebilding their homeland. Give them a sense that this is their country and its worth protecting. 4. eventually.....LEAVE.
