What Strongman.

Reader comment on item: The Roots of Iraq's Rebellion

Submitted by Sheldon Lazarowtz (United States), Apr 27, 2004 at 16:43

Your history is absolutely right on target. Where is the strongman? Suppose there is no one? What do we do? Do we still stay? When would we leave? The article does not answer the question of the strongman. One of your other readers seems to agree. What person do you think would fit into to the type of Iraqi leader that you are describing?
