"When the people of Iraq are liberated, we will again have written another chapter in the glorious history of the United States of America." I advocate for the "surge" and counterinsurgency strategy of General Petraeus. The surge has paid off. From June 2007 through March 2008, sectarian and ethnic violence in Iraq declined by 90%. Civilian and coalition forces deaths fell by 70%.
- Push for political reconciliation and good government
- Get Iraq's economy back on its feet
- Call for international pressure on Syria and Iran
When Iraqi forces can safeguard their own country, American troops can return home.
