The Brain Drain Kidnapping- Military-Catch-22!

The first thing you do when creating a dictator-ship/theocracy-is you control and instigate a brain-drain. Get all of the engineers, scientists, academics, and round them up like a herd of cattle. With over 150 people kidnapped in Baghdad, the end is getting closer for U.S. troops involvement. We constantly hear that the Iraqi government has to stand up, and they have stood up and told our military to take a hands-off approach to reigning in certain militias. 2 weeks ago this mass-kidnapping couldn't have taken place, but now the U.S. policy leaders have given it the okay, through lack of intervention.
