Piecing Together the Iraqi Puzzle

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

In preparation for the upcoming conference on stabilizing Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Syria, should each meet with the leaders of the various factions in Iraq and listen to their concerns and suggestions for bringing peace and unity to Iraq. Iran has tremendous leverage with both the Shia and the Kurds, and working with the Saudis and Turks could work out an equitable resolution to the current Zionist manufactured crisis in Iraq. The Saudis hold great influence over the Sunni and have intimate relations with the Israelis and Americans. The Saudis represent a powerful source of influence to secure justice for the Sunni.

Though the Americans and Israelis have created and stoked religious and ethnic tensions through the use of false flag terrorism, the problems the Zionists have created have underlying political and economic roots. Oil is a great concern for all parties. Political influence is a great concern for all parties. However, Iraq has great potential beyond just oil. Iraqis should join forces to make the desert bloom, and learn from the Israeli example on how to manage land and water resources to promote agriculture and tourism. Such projects are a long way off, but they can be used to promote cooperation and mutual respect, as well as a sense of national unity and national pride.

In the near term, the regional powers should work to form a consensus within Iraq of common goals. It would be a large step forward if all parties agreed that the nation should be preserved and that power and profits should be shared and shared alike.

There is a lot of money to be had in rebuilding Iraq. Iraq should take back control of its oil and funnel the profits that oil generates into construction contracts managed and staffed by Iraqis. This will create incentives for stability and an incentive to safeguard the oil. Nationalize the oil and have the revenues find their way back into the economy indirectly through construction contracts, schools, hospitals, transportation systems, etc., such that any party who sabotages the flow of oil and the stability of the nation cuts their own throat and gains nothing.

Iraqis need leadership, hope and employment. Creating business structures to clean up and rebuild Iraq will naturally result in the formation of a leadership structure with a profit motive. As Iraq improves and employment rises, there will be fewer men on the streets, greater pride in the nation and more hope for its future.

The Americans are deliberately undermining the future of Iraq, and are making ungodly profits by doing it, without producing anything of lasting value. Be careful not to destroy Iraq in order to punish the Americans. You will better undermine the plans of the Zionists by making Iraq a prosperous and peaceful united republic.

The local economy in each community is the key to stabilizing Iraq. The "sectarian" conflicts can be resolved by making the hub of the national government little more than a means of promoting local economies, not to the detriment of one another, but to the betterment of one another. In other words, keep the power local and rigidly define the powers of the central government in ways that provide equity to the local communities, but otherwise leave the regulatory powers closer to home, while securing minority rights with rigid federal protections.
