I was looking to post this in the Politics of War forum... it can be moved if you want.
What happen with the US Armed Forces in this decade.
After A quick stop in Afganistan, to rout the Taliban, the Forces moved into Iraq to Take down Saddams reghim. After decimating the Armed forces of
Saddam, the US-lead forces just sat around Iraq... since 2003 our US forces have been 'just hanging out' in Iraq.
4+ years later, we can see there was some sort of miscalcutaion in 'strategery'...
SO I ask you... Its back at the time of the destrucation of Saddams Forces, what are you going to do... you are the Commander-In-Cheif... Take us into
Heres what i would have done.. short version...
After Saddams forces are smashed, the main contingent of the US forces should have moved into Syria, there was intelegence(Satalight Pics) that
ANYTHING that Saddam could have had, was moved to Syria.
So After the US-lead forces, most likey with Isreal in this One, would attack Syria. Back in 2003/4 Iran was starting to 'mess' with the US forces.
So the forces move into Iran, chrush the Iranian forces, and then 90%+ of ALL Armed forces would move out of the Middle Eastern Theather of War.
The Result would have the new Iraq, and Independent Kurdistan, New Democratic nations in Syria, Iran, and Afganistan.
This situation is contigent on what Turkey and Saudi would do. There would be a HUGE POWER VOID there. I could see things going diffrently then
planned, but thats what war is, the first plan never works, you must adapt.
Bush has not adapted. His stratagy has failed in Iraq...
What is Yours...
