WINNING THE WAR IN IRAQ

STEPS FOR WINNING THE WAR IN IRAQ:
1] Killing or capturing terrorist occupiers currently in that country.
2] Training IRAQI forces to the point where they can provide their own security
3] Sealing the borders to prevent foreign agitators from coming into IRAQ
4] Convincing normal IRAQIs of the benefits of democracy and why religious theocracies and tyranny are dead-end political systems
5] Getting the majority of IRAQIs to participate in voting
6] Getting a democratically elected government up and running and protecting it, until it can protect itself
7] Encouraging foreign investment and businesses to come to IRAQ to provide jobs and hope for the people there...

These are the first steps on the road to winning. As you can see, leaving now is not in any of those steps. We are on the right track... but more needs to be done in STEP 1, 2. Security right now is still lacking and needs to be shored up. Other steps are ongoing...
