Food not Bombs (A plan for Peace in occupied territories)
Food not Bombs
Declare a complete ceasefire to all areas of an occupied country and send the word by messenger to every village greater than 50 people word of the cease fire, and designated days of feasting, provided by none other than the US government.
2 Circles of Peace talks are to commence, over the course of 2 weeks, to discuss the nature of the infrastructure building Americans (training, materials, labor costs and consulting services plus cost of security) at a total value of half of American total expenditure the first year, and a quarter the second. We will make that conditional upon the safety of our consultants,relative peace and sufferage for women. .
The Outer Circle will contain leaders from smaller villages who will collaborate discuss feast and get to know one another as well as produce ideas and vote for a team at the end of the first week to join the Inner Circle. The proceedings will be televised and broadcast in every town. The Inner Circle ceremonies will consist of local games as well as US ones. Poetry, music and dance will be featured prominently from different regions and nations. These are already featured prominently in Afghani culture.
We will also offer scholarships to American universities to several thousand Afghanis/Iraqi. nations also act more favorably towards nations educating their children.
This plan will work. Current expenditures represent more than their yearly GDP, create a million or so jobs working on homes, towns and villages, as well as the roads and railroads in between and will ensure the country is in better shape than when we got there.
Our military research facilities and contractors will be converted over to civil engineering projects, and so we will need to keep a large percentage of our engineers here to train our own corps, so some parts of the training of foreign engineers will have to happen in the US.
For the most part, the military mission will end, leaving enough troops to save our engineers, and to cut their way out of the country with extreme prejudice should there be a massive betrayal.
