Democracy is the revolution; the so-called insurgency is the counter revolution. The counter-revolution will burn out if we can keep them from being resupplied and reinforced. We can do this with good border control - which will be easier to attain if Iran and Syria are threatened with military reprisals if they continue to fail in this regard. Reprisals should take the form of cascading missile attacks against their miltary infrastructure.
This threat should be made openly and immediately - well before the Iraqi election.
