Keeping the Peace.

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Now that America has militarily vanquished the Iraqi Ba'ath party, it raises the question as to whether America ( & the chances for a home grown Iraqi democracy ) would be best served by leaving early or staying long ?


Should the Iraqi Ba'ath party be allowed to field candidates in any future Iraq elections, or should they be ruled out of bounds like the Nazi party was in post-war Germany ?

Personally, i think it is very evenly balanced on both issues & can see positives & negatives arising from both scenario options

What do you think ?\

    Part of me wants America to stay and build up more of the country while the other half of me says that if we leave it alone then it might become stronger in the long run. As far as the members of the Bath Party being able to return to the elections, im just not sure. Again, one half of me thinks they should have another chance and the other says, why would we want to ruin it again? I think i'll have to think for a while on this one.
