The Solution For Iraq
The mess in Iraq is dragging on way too long and Americans are
growing weary of it. The main reason is that al qaeda ( the
global islamofascist terrorist factions ) and Iran have combined
forces to try to see that the U.S. loses everything there. We're
hearing that Iran has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into
the Iraq insurgency movement from their end.
So what's the solution? Keep U.S. troops there for another ten
years? There's even talk of dividing Iraq into three separate
countries now, which is not acceptable to anyone who doesn't want
this effort lost. It would be a last ditch effort to prevent a
But I think I've just thought of the perfect solution. Rational
If we can invoke the rational self interest of every single Iraqi
towards fighting these terrorist insurgents, it will be won and
Iraq will remain a country.
How can that be done?
All of Iraq's rich oil resources were previously controlled,
owned if you will, by Saddam Hussein, who abused them for his
evil ends. Among libertarians and Objectivists, I hear
suggestions that the oil resources should now be privatized, but
to whom? If they were sold off to the highest bidder, who would
get the money from the sale? And then they could just wind up
with big corporations using the oil for corrupt purposes to
politically dominate the country.
No, I have a much better, much more elegant solution that will
seize the self interest of each and every Iraqi and get them to
unite like never before to save their country.
Give every adult Iraqi an equal number of shares of ownership in
Iraq's oil resources and the profits from its sale, payable
This will give every Iraqi a rational self interest in shutting
down the terrorist insurgents, stopping all interference from
outsiders, and putting aside sectarian differences so they can
all cooperate towards making their yearly oil incomes.
I think this would be the perfect solution to a problem that
promises to remain a terrible mess unless this is done.
