Immediate withdrawal will lead to a humanitarian nightmare
Most Iraqis expect the Baker Commission's report to provide intellectual cover for retreat
and may produce more peace in America than in Iraq. Equally, the regionalisation solution
will undoubtedly diminish democratic hope of Iraqi people.
"After all Britain made a commitment to the people of Iraq to turn tyranny to democracy."
Said Jabbar Hasan, director of Iraqi Association in London.
Regionalisation of Iraq will allow bordering countries to protect their interests in Iraq
directly. We are skeptical that those countries will want to be helpful. "Instead of
regionalisation, we need to jump-start political accord and genuine militia
disarmament." Said Hasan.
"It doesn't matter how "realistic" the political proposals drawn up by Baker Commission
may be, unless the majority of Iraqi people can be protected from foreign terrorists,
militias and death squads, they will not be able to negotiate and sustain any political
solution." Said Hasan
There is no getting around of the fact that under present conditions, cut and run policy
or regionalisation solution, will bring about the rapid collapse of Iraq, and the violence
we are seeing today would seem minor compared to the bloodshed of a genuine civil war.
