Check Out The New Player???

Ok, now this is an interesting idea
Republican presidential candidate Tommy Thompson said Wednesday he wants to let the Iraq government decide whether U.S. troops should remain in the war-torn country.

During his official presidential campaign announcement in Clive, Thompson, the former Wisconsin governor, said the vote would be the first part of a three-step plan to ensure "our troops can leave sooner rather than later." "We should ask those leaders to decide whether or not they want America in their country," he said. "I'm confident they'll vote yes ... but if that government votes we should pull out, we should pull out." Furthermore, Thompson proposed a federal government for Iraq and its 18 provinces, each of which would be controlled by one of the three prominent Muslim sects in the country: the Kurds, Shiites and Sunnis.

"You would have the opportunity for individuals to move into those territories which are controlled by their religious theocracy, and you would get away from this inane civil war," he said.
