So, I have decided to construct a proposal to submit to the two key players in this damn "conflict". The Sunni's and the Shiites.

Dear Sunni's and Shiites,
I sit here day after day and watch the telly and see how many innocent lives are being slaughtered. I try to understand the reasoning on turning your backs upon your own people, yet I can't. I do, however understand one thing.
I know that we aren't wanted there, and quite frankly I don't want us there either. If you guys want to kill each other off, so be it. So, I have come up with the following proposal. I believe that you will find it agreeable.
Stop the violence for at least six months. No more IEDS, no mortars, No bombs, No kidnappings, nothing. NONE of that. Now, I realize this is a hard concept, and you must think I am insane for even bringing up such a daring plan, but if you will just hear me out, I think you will see it is quite genius.
If you two will stop fighting, then perhaps Bush will get his head out of his ass, see he keeps sending more troops over there, because you guys won't stop killing each other (and us). If there is no killings for six months, then he can proclaim he was a success, then he will bring our troops home. He won't be in office much longer and I don't foresee the new "President" wanting the stain of your blood upon his/her name.
I know it's a radical move, but I think it just might work! After we leave, by all means, resume the killing, kill each other off. Destroy your nation, I don't care. To be honest, I am completely selfish in my writing of this. You see, the love of my life is over there, and to be quite frank, he doesn't want to be there, but just like you, he has to follow orders. I know he would rather be home, safe and sound with his family, hearing the laughter of his kids, then running for cover because of mortars or hearing the news of lost friends or living in fear that everyday may well be his last.
Six months, that's is all. Six months, hey, think of it this way, it will give you time to get better weapons, to better kill your people off with. This is my proposal to you, I am hoping that you will give it the utmost consideration.
Peace Be with You and Yours,
