ABSTRACT
The article offers observations on the U.S. reconstruction efforts in post-war Iraq, and the apparently contradictory advice given for these efforts. The U.S. must make efforts to consolidate Iraq President Saddam Hussein's weapons program, and his contacts with world terrorists. Iraq should be scoured for weapons of mass destruction. A second U.S.-sponsored conference was held in Iraq to discuss a transitional government. Iraq is facing threat from different governments. It is viewed that the U.S. without acing as occupiers should develop an agenda for Iraq's political future.
