Iraq's Compact With America

Zalmay Khalilzad (U.S. ambassador to Iraq) wrote in OpinionJournal How we'll beat the insurgency and create a functioning nation

  1. Iraq needs a "national compact" enshrined in its constitution.
  2. The Iraqi government and the coalition will work together to isolate and defeat the terrorists and Baathists who want the restoration of the old regime.
  3. The U.S. and the Iraqi government are seeking to encourage the region's leaders to address problems in a new cooperative spirit and to pressure those who continue to foment instability.
  4. The U.S. will work with the Iraqi government to improve the capacity of Iraqi ministries.
  5. We will seek to increase economic opportunity.
  6. The U.S. will work with the Iraqi government to set the conditions for a successful election--with full participation of all communities.
  7. I will be engaging across the board to assist the Iraqi government to achieve our common objectives and mobilize more support by other countries.

I believe we will be successful IF we can overcome the MSM's attempt to distrupt our efforts by hypeing all of the bad information, and burying all of the good information out of Iraq.
