Excerpt from Term Paper:



American will be better equipped, militarily and monetarily, to deal with the threat of terrorism once our troops are withdrawn from the country of Iraq. It is not the goal of those political representatives, leaders, or individuals who support the withdrawal of American troops from the country of Iraq to cause further destabilization of other nations or to bring further harm to American itself. It is, in fact, the position of this writer and others that withdrawal from the country of Iraq will serve to reduce the threat of terrorism against by the forces which now pose a threat to America's military forces presently in Iraq. It is the firm belief of this writer that withdrawal of American forces from Iraq will bring about a more expeditious peace process to that region of the world.

Finally, this writer firmly holds that it is essential for the leadership in Iraq to step up to its responsibility to their duly elected positions and roles within that nation. It is time, too, that other Middle Eastern leaders - those leaders who have successfully proven that participation in the world community and market can be both peaceful and benefit to their countries; take roles as mentors and offer service and guidance to the Iraqi leadership in bringing about a peace and stability in Iraq. Those nations are the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia; each having an interest in economic stability in the Middle East, must now assume the role of mentoring Iraq's Muslim leadership to peace and prosperity and help it assume a place in the world community that neither poses a threat to other nations, or to itself as a sovereign nation.

The people of Iraq must be given the opportunity to avail themselves of the democratically elected government they have chosen for themselves, and must now take responsibility for their security and well being and economic and military prosperity. They must unite themselves, regardless of religious affiliation, in efforts to restore their nation to one of prosperity, and begin to assume the roles and opportunities that now exist before them, but for the presence of American troops and contractors and consultants, have yet to do.
