Alright, now we all (well, most of us) know that if the military leaves Iraq, its going to turn to crap. The "democratic" Iraqi government would never be able to support itself. We need a more effective strategy. Any suggestions? I propose that Iraq be split into three regions, one for Shia, one for Kurd, and one for Sunni. Then a system is instituted whereby the income from oil is evenly distributed. The US, and other nations, would still have to keep a close eye upon them, but it may alleiviate the tension somewhat.
