Charlie Summers on War & Peace
A: There are three things we should be doing in Iraq. First, we must ensure that troop levels remain roughly where they are for the next 12-18 months to continue to help provide security and to continue training the Iraqi Security Forces. Second, during that same time period, we need to redouble our diplomatic efforts and expand the current coalition of nations supporting actions in Iraq to include all Western nations. Third, we must employ a second "surge" - not a military surge, but a "peace surge" - to include the deployment of the United States Peace Corps.
