IRAQ - A Possible Answer? And now Syria (2016)

This is a framework to work with and Improve. (Some will say 10 years too late)

How can American forces, who illegally invaded Iraq, be extricated, without the country descending into a vicious lose/lose civil war that spills over into neighboring states causing regional conflagration? This is a wild proposition that would ask the West to ask for Islamic assistance as well as impel the Shite and Sunni arms of Islam to bury the hatchet for ever, sort out their differences and commit to unconditional peace.

Possibly the best way is to have the UN ask all countries within the Islamic realm to field lightly armed blue helmeted personnel for an alliance of Islamic countries to go into Iraq as peace keepers.

(This paid for by the USA and Britain and proportionately by all other countries who supported this non UN sanctioned incursion.)

With around 51 countries being Islamic with 1.5 billion adherents, a fifth of our planet, this is the time to give them all an opportunity to take care of their own affairs.

The goal is that true Moslem's do not kill Moslem's.
The challenge is to have Shite and Sunni Moslem's working in the spirit of cooperation to bring peace to this area of the world. The aim is to school the Sunny and Shites to co-operate for the good of the community.
A big challenge, however one worthy of the higher values of love and chivalry, especially as we all share the same breath.

Shite and Sunni team and language translators / communicators would be with every brigade, battalion, company and platoon. Being a living example of peaceful co existence. No extremist troops would be engaged. Possibly a neutral country can oversee the selection panel and training.

Conflict resolution is a learned system, so as to be able to reconcile opposing points of view and make it possible, especially with the correct training, monitoring and ongoing support.

Having Islamic/Arab/Academic think tanks using the latest techniques of peaceful reconciliation can broaden the scope of co-operation. Bringing polarized points together in the spirit of goodwill is achievable.

This will put the Islamic world in the global media spotlight, where they can show the world that Islam is a peaceful religion, dedicated to the brotherhood of man, and (sister-hood too).

Yes, there are huge hurdles to surmount however, there are many Moslem's with academic training who would be able to show their communication abilities and bring these threads all together.

With financial support, and a strong will, steps towards resolution can be achieved.

Why is this not been seeded and debated on global TV, Radio and Newsprint media?

Why is the media, not focused on solutions?

Why are the politicians not willing  to broach this subject?

Why have the big bloated think tanks in the Western world, not been putting this concept forward? Because, they are not interested - they want the oil reserves, a divided Middle East and the fact that the burning of oil will cause more Co2  and this causing more climate degradation means nothing at all.

They are running another agenda.
