In the runup to the Iraq war, Dubya's crew successively bullied, belittled, and bypassed the UN. Now it finds itself with a massive peacekeeping problem (for as long as there still is any peace in Iraq to keep), with overstressed troops who are poorly trained for the job, and who have already been in the field way too long, with no relief in easy sight. Meanwhile, other countries with experienced peacekeeping forces find, for some reason, that they just don't want to make a major commitment to helping us out.

There is only one possible solution: armed, unmanned crowd control robots.
