A sensibile Iraq policy - ownership.

Reader comment on item: Bibliography – My Writings on U.S. Policy toward Iraq

Submitted by Herbert Nevyas MD (United States), Dec 19, 2006 at 14:54

I cannot immagine why this country would cede our fruits of victory to any band of Islamist savages - ever.
We should maintain our position in Iraq until we have been paid back fully for our sacrifices and until the region is truly stable, enlightened and peaceful - I think it will take centuries and perhaps millenia for this to happen. Meanwhile we should take and utilize the oil, the population, the military bases and anything else of the vanquished which we the victor require. We should actively eliminate terrorist populations.

All of this would be to the great benefit of the remaining indigenous population to which we would introduce education, religious freedom, economic opportunity, rule of law and freedom from tyranny.

We must certainly use our military postion to conquer Syria, Iran and the Arabian peninsula, to deal with them similarly and to bring peace and prosperity to the sane population of the region.

More important, we would remove the threat of our own annihilation by insane thermonuclear fanatics, a real threat to which we subject our loved ones and our decendants by pursuing any other policy.

If we are to survive, we have NO CHOICE.
