Reader comment on item: A Strongman for Iraq?

Submitted by Ted Green (United States), Apr 30, 2003 at 09:03

Mr. Pipes,

All those young fist shakers and yellers need jobs, We had a similar situation in the thirties and Roosevelt started the Civilian Conservation Corps. It kept young men rather isolated while teaching them to read and write and various crafts Initial work might be just picking up. Any wages at all will be better than none. Perhaps food rations would do the trick.
Assembly points should be distant from where they are now gathering and numerous enough to keep body count as low as possible.
You are doing a swell job. Good luck
