Millionday: NOW THIS WAS WRITTEN IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF THE US OF A IN>>>>>2003<<<<<<<<<<<'How This Ends':
Iraq's Uncertain Path toward National Reconciliation
Millionday: NOTE -- READ EVERY WORD
Millionday: During Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki's visit to Washington next week, the Obama administration will likely seek to reinvigorate that country's flagging reconciliation process as part of ongoing efforts to establish a stable political order in Iraq. Progress,
however, continues to be hindered by ongoing violence, deep-seated suspicions, and partisan politics, raising questions about the ultimate prospects for national reconciliation.
Millionday: NOTE -- AGAIN THIS FIRST PART IS FROM 2003 WHEN THIS ALL BEGAN
Millionday: NOTE -- NOW THIS WRITTEN IN 2009 AS THE PROCESS OF IRAQ AND PLAN CONTINUES >>>>>>>
Millionday: Reconciliation and Postconflict Stability
The process by which war-torn societies heal is imperfectly understood. Experience, however, suggests that societies undertaking a formal reconciliation process to consolidate domestic peace agreements have a better chance of avoiding further civil conflict than those that do not.
Before 2003, U.S. and Iraqi thinking about reconciliation focused largely on the legacy of Saddam Hussein. Today, after six years of insurgency and civil war, reconciliation must also deal with the legacy of violence among ethnosectarian groups, and between former insurgents and the Iraqi government.
Millionday: Successful reconciliation efforts, such as those in Argentina, Chile, El Salvador, Honduras, Mozambique, South Africa, and Uruguay, require courageous and visionary leadership, and often involve the following elements:
Truth telling, which permits victims to share traumas and perpetrators to acknowledge guilt
Redefining social identities by portraying both victims and perpetrators as fellow citizens
Partial justice, where victims are compensated and at least some of the perpetrators are punished
Public events that promote forgiveness and new beginnings
Most of these aspects, however, are missing from Iraq's flawed reconciliation process, which encompasses a diverse array of activities involving a broad array of actors –
the Iraqi and U.S. governments, nongovernmental and international organizations (NGOs and IOs), and neighboring states. These activities are often based on divergent assumptions about the nature of reconciliation and the means to achieving it.
Millionday: NOTE -- REMEMBER THAT DURING THE RECONCILIATION CONFERENCE
(HELD TODAY) THE UNITED NATIONS WAS STATING HOW PLEASED AND READY THEY ARE TO ENSURE SUCCESS OF THE DECLARED PREPAREDNESS OF NATIONAL RECONCILIATION
Millionday: NOTE -- THE UNITED STATES AND THEIR EFFORTS --->>>Since 2003, the United States has promoted reconciliation through the following activities:
Working to incorporate Sunni Arabs into the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) and the political process
Making amends for the inadvertent killing of Iraqi civilians by offering apologies and compensation
Engaging "reconcilable" elements in the Sunni Arab insurgency that are willing to join the political process
Mending ties between estranged communities (Sunnis and Shiites, Arabs and Kurds) by organizing meetings to address common problems
Pressing the Iraqi government to legislate the integration of former insurgents and disenfranchised communities into the political process
Documenting property claims and disputes
Millionday: NOTE -- VERY STRANGE TO CALL SOME OF THOSE THINGS "HELP" BUT MOVING ON TO THE NEXT PART
CanTWaitwoRV: Thx MD for answering by providing the "flashback" on why this is so monumental. Maliki stopped this for so long and now it's finally done
Millionday: HOLD ON EVERYONE JUST A SEC AND LET ME SHOW YOU SOME MORE IMPORTANCE TO THIS NEWS -- HOLD THE FLOOR PLEASE ---- EVERYONE
Millionday: NOTE -- I SKIPPED THESE >>For all these reasons, Iraqis are likely to coexist uneasily for the foreseeable future. National reconciliation, if it occurs at all, could take years.
Millionday: NOTE -- WRITTEN IN 2009 AND SO THE YEARS ARE PASSED AND COMING IS THE INFO ON WHERE WE WOULD BE DUE TO THIS CONFERENCE TAKING PLACE AND THE ISSUANCE OF NATIONAL RECONCILIATION
Millionday: Next Steps
Preventing major renewed outbreaks of violence is an essential condition for successful reconciliation in Iraq. Accordingly, the main U.S. priorities in the next two years should be to press the Iraqi government to find stable employment -- even if "make work" -- for former SOI personnel and army officers who participated in the insurgency, and to prevent clashes between the ISF and KRG forces in contested areas.
