Toward a Just and Peaceful Solution in Iraq

A Policy Paper on the War and Occupation of Iraq prepared by Pax Christi USA (March 2008) details the cost in American lives and money (p. 1). When it comes to solutions, it assumes a great many things falling into place as hoped. Meanwhile,
the U.S. should provide substantial financial resources and possibly play a limited operational role... (p. 3)

If limiting that role is contingent on "A revitalized Iraqi government working in concert with the United Nations and regional actors, including the Arab League" and "directly engaging the countries bordering Iraq, including Iran and Syria, as well as internal diplomacy and reconciliation to bring all factions within Iraq 'to the table'", it might not be that limited.
