Apparently a Captain in the US army made this little handout (pdf) with some good thoughts on how to make some positive progress in Iraq. According to this article the Captain was killed recently though.
I wish this would come into the hands of some of the political leaders, but I guess they wouldn't hardly react to it.
As usual the people who is in the middle of the mess doesn't get much listened to ... sadly.
I feel so deeply sorry for everyone who is in Iraq at the moment, especially the civilians who, as it has been an ever stronger trend since WWII, are the ones suffering the most.
