Post-war Iraq

I was in favor of the war in Iraq, but it was a close run thing. However, it's becoming obvious to me that the Bush administration never really imagined that they would end up going to war without UN approval. While winning the war without the support of the UN was never a problem, the post-war planning obviously went out the window when the UN failed to approve the war.

I haven't got a clue what might work, so Tom Friedman's suggestion sounds as good as any right now.
