What can you do with an open "can of worms"?

It's clear we made a mistake invading Iraq.
No doubt about it, has to be the poorest planned invasion of our time. Going in without an occupation or an exit strategy. Must be what it feels like to consider yourself "righteous".
It's clear after the attempts to make things right and put in place a system that will improve the quality of life; the Iraqis resent our presence. They show it on every news cast. They display their hatred and disregard for human life over and over w/suicide car bombs and w/the taking and execution of hostages. Totally unscrupulous lot.
Still we are an occupying force w/out a way out. Hostility should be expected.
But at what cost?
How many of our people have to sacrifice life & limb for an ungrateful cause?
How many hostages must be executed in this 3rd world sandbox before testing a neutron bomb?
I know this position may start to sound cold and even ruthless but I feel it may be time to respond in kind.
It is common procedure not to negotiate w/kidnappers but what if the next time they request we release some of their terrorist comrades we do so. Over a mosque or public arena from a chopper at about 1000 feet. Let them embrace Allah or whatever new world order they seek. The next time they behead a hostage, we behead a dozen.
Seriously we need a new strategy..
Sweep up the mess we've made so far and get the hell out.

It would be a noble concept for the Iraqis and or Muslims to take responsibility and police their own people. After all it is their aggression and terrorism around the globe which has brought the problems back to their door.

If you Zealots embrace the notion that your religion and beliefs are righteous with out err, then step up take charge and police your people and keep your house in order.
If not then don't be surprised by a visit from the world police.

"The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity."
Francis Maitland Balfour
