Look at what's happening in Afghanistan? The stooge Karzai is doing a fantastic job - healthy swiss account balance, total chaos with zero infra-structure development and Taleban on the rising! But since Afghanistan offers no financial benefit (OIL!) and is a liability in terms of foreign trooops occupation, it is on the back burner as far as the West is concerned BUT Iraq has a resource of wealth (OIL!) to plunder and thus the continued illegal occupation irrespective!
As someone suggested, why don't you let the Iraqi masses decide what or who they want to decide their future?
GREAT DISCUSSION of DIALOGUE!
Thank you for debating this issue with me and sharing your thoughts with other benzworld members.
To answer your questions for 12 months I was working as a Military Advisor to the Iraqi Army. Currently I am working supporting Military Advisors that are mentoring, advising and providing Coalition support to Iraqi Security Forces.
My expertise, I graduated from St. John's University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. I then studied Criminal, International Law and Business Law and graduated Touro Law School.
I am not choosing the next leader of Iraq I am only here to discuss here on Benzworld where members are from various countries throughout the world, that can provide input and the democracy process can be a positive discussion about Iraq.
I am not recommending a Saudi Arabian government; I am suggesting a Constitutional Monarchy as in Jordan.
Jordan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Research the stability and the strength of the Jordan government and the prestige it has in the Arab and Western arena. That is a fact and it can not be disputed.
The Kingdom of Jordan has the most viable Democratic system that is not in danger or collapse, such as Lebanon.
The reason I have used Nelson Mandela and Apartheid it to show how a leader can forgive the minorities that had control of the government and oppressed the majority but when he was able to assume control of the government he led the nation to forgive the past discrimination and oppressive that was done by the minority government of South African and united all South Africans under a democracy.
The Sunni minority in Iraq controlling the nation and oppressing the Shia majority and other minorities, but now there does not seem to be a leader that is able to mend all the hearts and minds of all Iraqi people to forgive and move forward for the future of their nation.
Pertaining to your discussion on Afghanistan that is another topic I would like to discuss at a later time but let’s keep the discussion about a viable candidate that can win the support of Iraqi people and lead the nation to a healing process for the future of the Iraqi people.
