    Default What Role for Germany in Iraq?

    SWP, 28 Aug 08: What Role for Germany in Iraq?
    The security situation in Iraq has improved markedly. The U.S. "Surge," along with several other factors appear to have had a positive effect. A window of opportunity has opened. Iraq's future nevertheless remains uncertain and the possibility that the situation could deteriorate into a broader regional crisis remains.

    To date, debate over Iraq in Germany and Europe has focused primarily on the wisdom and success of the U.S.-led 2003 invasion. Five years later, however, experts are beginning to recognize that the time has come for a renewed discussion of Germany's own interests in Iraq.

    This paper identifies key German interests and assesses German policy options.

    If the Europeans and NGO's start to send in humantarian aid and manpower, they will be immediate targets of AQI. Would the U.S. be better off providing FP for these new assets or in maintaning current stratagies in Iraq? I would certainly welcome German aid in Iraq, but I would also caution them to be able to provide there own security to best degree possible by situation.
