    Wow… I’m very mad at this. I actually like web development stuff. To think someone is getting paid this much… but what’s this about Iraq?

    Well… risk and reward.

    I am not a programmer but I am someone special cut out to bring peace and economic properity to Iraq. My plan is as follows:
    1. Draw a line from Alkoot,Alnasraya, Azzubair,Asmara, include river Tigris. Call it the AMERICAN ZONE. Announce on TV, Radio all families wishing to move into the Eastern Iraq.US embassy will pay rent for the vacated dwelling in Baghdad.With that they would provide STUPPY type agricultural greenhouses ( fully airconditioned) to the new citizen of the AMERICAN ( PEACE) ZONE. The people reach there with families are checked thoroughly like they get checked at airports. Divide the AMERICAN (PEACE) ,OR SADDAM ZONE into four provinces, Shia, Sunni, Kurd and American Army province towards Kuwait/Basra. Food, shelter, clothes are provided by an International effort. Build airports to bring in stuff. 2. Get 50% US troops back home. All the troops are put away from harm’s way. Hanging Saddam and scuttling police/Army was a major mistake. Resuscitate the Zone as a KINGSHIP ZONE. Instal Saddam’s only son as boy King, like Shah of Iran and Hussain of Jordan. The oil share is 50-50 for the PEACE ZONE and the TROUBLED ZONE in the West. Kick start a new era. Say SORRY – a nice word.
