A formula for Guaranteed Iraqi success!

Here's another thought about Iraqi's standing up, so we can stand down. We need to turn over the Green Zone to the Iraqi's to protect. If they can't protect even one square mile, they will never protect the country. The Iraqi politicians, Sunni, Shiite and Kurds, all have a vital interest in being protected. It has been shown that in order to solve large problems, any group that has differences, (and the 3 Iraqi groups definitely have a dog in this fight,) needs to work together to solve small problems, then with the experience they have gained and the increased trust can solve larger problems. So by having all 3 groups responsible for security in the Green Zone, there is a chance that once their lives are entrusted to each other they might compromise and rise to the occasion. If not, and they can't secure the Green Zone, the leaders will eventually be killed and a new government will need to be formed but in any event, the current stalemate will be resolved. :)

I like the idea but it needs wise and careful nuturing. I lived in Rwanda and Burundi both of which have been scarred by deep rooted sectarianism. I know how difficult it is to heal old wounds. That said, it is at least an idea which more than Washington and London have managed to conjure between them. Worth a shot.

Thanks speakeezie for your comment. The U.S. would also have to leave the Green Zone and let the Iraqi's govern themselves there. We could pull out to the peripheral areas of Iraq or in uninhabitated areas where we control the ground and the air, but I think this could work.
