There is no magic formula to solve the problems of Iraq. However, there are actions that can be taken to improve the situation and protect American interests.
Many Americans are dissatisfied, not just with the situation in Iraq but with the state of our political debate regarding Iraq. Our political leaders must build a bipartisan approach to bring a responsible conclusion to what is now a lengthy and costly war. Our country deserves a debate that prizes substance over rhetoric, and a policy that is adequately funded and sustainable. The President and Congress must work together. Our leaders must be candid and forthright with the American people in order to win their support.
No one can guarantee that any course of action in Iraq at this point will stop sectarian warfare, growing violence, or a slide toward chaos. If current trends continue, the potential consequences are severe. Because of the role and responsibility of the United States in Iraq, and the commitments our government has made, the United States has special obligations. Our country must address as best it can Iraq's many problems. The United States has long-term relationships and interests at stake in the Middle East, and needs to stay engaged.
In this consensus report, the ten members of the Iraq Study Group present a new approach because we believe there is a better way forward.

READ THIS!! It is easily as good as War and peace, Brothers Karamazov, or Lord of the Rings. Manzoni is humble yet brilliant. This may be the best novel ever!

I'm an opera buff, and my favorite composer is the Italian Giuseppe Verdi, whose favorite Italian author was by far Alessandro Manzoni. I have only read up to Chapter Five of this novel in the original language, and I only understand half of the words, but it has so far been a novel that was difficult to put down. The descriptions of the people and places and the fears and passions of the priest, peasant fiancés, and doctor all induce a desire to find out what happens next. I hope that whoever reads this book will either understand it or find a good translation because it is definitely one of the most beautiful pieces of literature that exists and does honor to the whole human race. Enjoy!
