Stacey, Jeffrey. "Re-occupy Iraq? (United States on the Iraq War)." The National Interest 90 (July-August 2007): 58(7). In the article “Re-occupy Iraq?” the writer Jeffrey Stacey analyzes the ideas of a troop surge by the Republicans, and a troop withdrawal by the Democrats. With the idea of another troop surge, Stacey explains that, “similar troop surges have failed in each of the last three years.” For the phased withdrawal plan, Stacey states militia groups such as the Mahdi Army and the Badr Brigades are preventing Iraq’s government and parliament from governing at the most basic level, and are not even able to implement policies or laws. Without having a strategy that rebuilds Iraq into a stable country, Stacey says we would end up with 600,000 more Iraqi civilian deaths due to a civil war, enable the separatist politics of different regions, exile the Iraqi middle class, embolden Iran as the strongest state in the Gulf, prompt further Islamic fundamentalism, and also endanger U.S. allies in the Gulf region.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
