    Outlaw all weapons other than those needed by the Iraqi government. If anyone is seen with any weapon they are shot on sight. If you are found guilty of insurgency you die. If you have anything that looks suspicious, it is taken from you. It's time to crack down on these assholes.

    No, no no. The terrorists have illegal weapons anyway. Loosen the gun laws so that terrorists are shot on site by civilians.

    Or the civilians can join their police force and get paid for killing raghead terrorists.

    So, you're saying "Gun Control?"

    I suppose it can translate to that. More importantly, I'm saying 'an end to dicking around in Iraq.'

    Lol @ gun control. Doesn't work in (relatively) peaceful american cities, surely won't work in Baghdad. Actually, I think we've already done some house-to-house weapons sweeps, haven't we? No wonder they want us gone.

    Well, people have weapons but most of the damage is being done by the homemade bombs... guns aren't really the issue.

    .... just sayin' :beer:

    That won't work. We're already in too deep. Keep going to course we're going because changing to a stronger tactic now will only turn the people against us. If we were going to go in hard it shouldve been from the begining.

    If we loosen the gun laws it could also cause a "civil war". Or atleast a couple quick skirmishes between Shia and Sunni Muslims.

    Is not one weapon allowed per Iraqi household presently?

    Finding ‘the bad guys’ has to be a bounty thing. Rather than spend a full 40% of our American tax dollars for security to build hospitals, schools, police stations and such (which - to make it a real democracy is absolutely essential), use part of those dollars to pay informants to turn the bastards in.

    We offer rewards here in the States for such things and with the unemployment at the rate it is in Iraq - it would give the guys on the street something to do, rather than be paid by the insurgents to plant IED’s or act as lookouts.
