Five Step Peace plan for Afghanistan
I have deliberated on the Iraq and Afghanistan situation and have come to a plan for a graceful exit. President Obama should simply declare Peace. How to declare Peace in a time of War?
First, we put Afghans on notice that we are only there on a temporary basis.
Second, during this time, our forces will co-opt with the Afghan government and locals to build schools and help the infrastructure.
Third, Since Iraq and Afghanistan are linked by time, region and karma - a portion of Iraq's oil money will pay for helping their neighbor. The money will come from Iraq.
Fourth, anybody who tries to forcefully stop this peace plan will be dealt with by due process. What is due process? It depends but - due process is justice.
Fifth, any al quada that fight it, will get due process ..
Of course, enforcing due process requires an appropriate Defense force and that should come from continued training of the Afghans to stand up on their own and a US , NATO and UN transition force.
Then put a time limit on our help and after that - they are on their own.
Well, stay tuned. tomorrow I may post about something else.
