From the article:

At one point, the Saudis proposed that Muslim forces be placed under the command of the Iraqi government. That idea won over Allawi, but not the United States. "The Americans wanted ultimate control, and that made it impossible to make this work," said the Iraqi official.

Sovreign country my @ss...  Insane

When will he learn? This would have been such an opportunity. Get the UN in to relieve some of our burden and start doing some good, and at the same time get our Islamic allies in there, which might end up shutting up some of the insurgents as they see their Muslim brothers start enforcing order. But I guess not....

I would wish that on him, but not the Iraqi people.

Which reminds me: who exactly is opposing Allawi in the elections? Not having a second choice is not very democratic.

There´ll be not UN force and no support coming from other countries as long as Bush is still in power. Even in a UN mission under Kerry, the US troops would be one among others and not the leaders to get the mess sorted out.
Right now nobody wants to burn his fingers and get used as cannon fodder.

With peace there is no fear, thus no reason to scare people in to supporting Bush.

Bush/Bin Laden are cut from the same cloth.
To hell with both and then we can have peace.

I wouldn't support Saudi troops keeping the peace in Iraq either. This is the same country that turns a blind eye to terrorism, evidenced by the majority of the 9/11 hijackers coming from there. I can see it now, a Saudi based force ignoring some of the worst atrocities we see commited now in Iraq.

Read the article. Neither the Saudis, nor any country that borders Iraq, would have sent troops under the proposal, and it would have been to protect the UN force only.

As terrible as Saddam is and as much as we do need to eliminate people like him from power he was able to maintain stability in Iraq through fear, something the United States has not been able to do for the past year and a half. Iraq can never be a successful society or even a democracy if there is no stability.

So for our creature comfort and financial gain, it's acceptable that a population be terrorized and brutalized?

So the worst elements in Iraq whom thrive on discord is the prime demoninator of whether the Iraqi citizenry desire or deserve stability?
And the worst of these offenders aren't even Iraqi, Zarqawi is Jordanian.
That not to imply he represents the Jordanian point of view, he's just another rotten apple swaying or reinforcing pre-existing world opinion on the futility of a possible better life for sub-human, un-democratic example of the species.
Or maybe hatred and failure of one man, George Bush, justifies the misery of millions?

Of course its not acceptable for people to be terrorized. I was making a point that Saddam kept the three parts of Iraq from fighting each other. How he did it was terrible but it happened to work. Now that Saddam has been removed the three parts of Iraq are fighting each other and the US army is failing to stabilize the country. Since Saddam was in power there has never been peace in Iraq but there was stability. Now that he is gone there appears to be neither. Could that be because there is US forces there and they just hate America and George Bush as many of your fellow citzens think is true, are they simply not scared of the troops and have nothing to lose. I have a question to any one who is willing to answer it.

What would happen in Iraq if US forces were to pull out and tell the Iraqi to eseentially deal with the problem themselves.

I'm sure that everyone has heard this quote, "Peace is not the absense of conflict, but also the presense of Justice." From this I see that Peace exists in most western nations. I also see stabilty as the absense of conflict and justice as a funtioning democracy and a successful society. What I think Bush is trying to so is get justice without stabilty In Iraq and it isn't working as of yet.

Another question: How does the United States get stability in Iraq?

JeffM, are you ready to volunteer yourself or your children to go to Darfur or Somalia or North Korea or Iran etc etc etc. Thousands of people are dying there and this is your new found reason to support the war in Iraq right? Saddam was a bad guy. That's what the Presi and Fox tell you guys and you just lick it up like cherry-flavored dog crap. This is our new foreign policy platform. We will invade your country killing thousands of poeple in the process and spending hundreds of billions of dollars because your leader is a bad person and thousands are dying. Think about what you'resigning up for. I'll tell you because neither Bush nor Fox have the balls to: a lifetime of military campaings that will never end because we have become so frigggin arrogant as to think that are brand of government is so perfect that any country that doesn't have it will get it by force. Christ Almighty, you guys need to put down the Bible for a few minutes and pick up the clue phone. Can you hear the clue phone ringing?

While I think that that's a pretty selfish position, that's not the point. The issue is whether some troops in Iraq (not US troops, but troops from Arab nations) should be under UN command, or Iraqi command. And the US, in its high-and-mighty "we know all attitude", refuses to let that happen, and in the process stops an initiative that could bring some major benefits to Iraq.

Brilliant George, just brilliant....  Insane

...yet Bush expects other nations to put their troops under U.S. Command, even for U.N. missions. Understand now why so many European countries are wary of sending their troops to Iraq? It's this 'We-Do-It-My-Way-Or-I-Am-Out' attitude that won't get us anywhere, not in Iraq, not in the Global War on Terrorism.

And speaking of the international political scene, Bush isn't in a very good position, to say the least, to continue with his demands, as many of the accusations regarding Iraq that the critical countries were wary about have been proven completely false.

Those European Leaders that did follow him blindly into the Iraqi Adventure, at the expense of their own approval ratings at home, are now secretly praying for Kerry to win, or rather Bush to lose the next US elections. This would give them an excuse to change their Iraqi policies, as their own populations and general common sense, demand, without losing too much credibility.

I am just calling it how I see it. I don't care if my comments are seen as "inflammatory" either. I despise Bin Laden just as much as W Bush. One happens to be an extremist fundalentalist Muslin willing to send others to kill the other an extreme fundamentalist Christian willing to send others to kill.
Image if there were no terrorist to fear, what would Dubya hide behind and use as fear to get votes and hang on to power?
Just like Areil Sharon and Bin Laden, Bush is not interested in peace.

Well, I assume this means, since there can only be one commander, all other forces should fall under US command.

Sorry, if you guys want to get that region sorted out, you will need help or you´ll end up running away with a tucked in tail like in Vietnam.
Except for the fast shrinking "coalition of the willing" no other country wants to send in their troops under US command. While most GIs are ok, the current leadership of the US lost almost all it´s credibility.
