Send A Clear Message
According to Mohammed at Iraq The Model, this is critical to wrong interpretations by extremists being reduced or eliminated.
To put it simply; saying that a policy that aims at ridding the world of regimes
and criminals such as Saddam, al-Qaeda, Ahmadinejad or Assad is a wrong policy
that breeds extremism is utterly stupid.I personally do not think that America
changed its policy from victory to exit but I see that it hasn't been good at
expressing its intentions nor sending the right signals, and when I say right I
mean clear even to those who have a problem understanding things.
Mohammed has quite a perspective on the situation in Iraq. I have referenced him before and this post seems right on as well.
