This amazing concept to enable peace in Iraq was written as a comment earlier today by Carl Johnson on my ‘contact me’ page here. I like it so much that I decided to put it up as a separate post. Thanks, Carl!
The only problem with Carl Johnson’s concept is that even if peace were accomplished in Iraq among the warring factions, the Americans most likely would not leave. They have numerous mega-bases (50, if I recall correctly) already built there and they surely would not leave the oil for which they came. The very presence of these occupiers on their soil would make the Iraqis fight. The upside would be that Iraqis would unite to fight their common enemy and not each other.
