Not So Hard

It's really not that hard to see a way out of Iraq with honor and dignity.  Pretty simple, really.
First, create a government people want- a socialist government that can provide jobs, education, healthcare, and basic welfare.  A government with a strong Bill of Rights to ensure everyone has equal access to the proceeds.  A government with proceeds from the sale of nationalized oil.
Of course, we can see the problem right away- none of the "higher" Western Civilisations want to see any of this come to pass.  Even the advanced EU largely sees Iraq's oil as a glistening bronzed turkey on a platter, simply waiting a quiet moment for the carving.
Be that as it may.  The problem is not that we can't see a way out, the problem is that we don't want to take it.
