On Iraq, I see two solutions....

1. US goes to non participating Nations and offers them a fair share of the Iraq contracts, jobs, etc and agress to reform command structures to allow two pronged approach to Iraq on counter insurgency and peace enforcement.... to resource this I forsee the French and Germans needing to get involved and troop numbers going up by 1.5 times with huge deployments of Armour aswell... Borders need to be secured and this can only be done with Syrias cooperation, and monitor force from UN far side with strong Defensive force Iran side to intercept arms, etc... Its a HUGE US created mess, and a Global effort is needed I think to restore credibility under a UN banner to remedial military actions by global community.

2. US ignores UN and allot of the world again, and does point 1 on its own... with UK of course. Rest of partners in Iraq are token contributors of troops...

Its a bad situation but the dramatic increase in troops will seal up a MASSIVE problem allowing voilence to continue, which is open borders... free movement of insurgents and lack of offensive operations mixed with peace encforcement operations....

Well, dismantling Saddams security infrastructure has undoubtably given us the majority of our problems .But how could we have operated with an inherantly corrupt and barbaric policing regime ...........Answer = the same way we are now ,only we would be dealing with less insurgents .As the majority of insurgents tend to be unemployed Soldiers and Police

There seems to be a foreign pressence there and more radical then the old guard.... Its try that disarming the Army and Police especially was one of many major errors, but to the future, overwhelming odds require overwhelming power to succeed.... Big troop numbers to get the borders closed and hand back to Iraq when they have the numbers to replace the Allies..... its building the local Army back up from scratch will undo the first mistake mentioned above.

By the end of the night, after hearing her sober and drunk, I thought she was witless who lacked any common sense whatsoever..... needless tosay, no phone numbers were exchanged... hehe!!..
