Anarchy as a system of rule
I really have to wonder how different it would be if the US military just pulled out. Maybe just as a trial for a few weeks. The only reason I can see for staying would be to install security cameras everywhere to record people and their movements… it could give intelligence that the CIA doesn’t have. Especially since the CIA is run by contractors in Iraq – who like the warlords in Somalia have more interest in the conflict continuing rather than resolving it.
