Essay Instructions: I. THE TOPIC
The primary focus of this thesis will be to identify key lessons learned from the Phoenix Program on countering Viet Cong Infrastructure (VCI) and apply these lessons to develop an effective strategy for current Operation Iraqi Freedom(OIF).
II. THE PROBLEM OR ISSUE AND THE RESEARCH QUESTION
A. The Problem or Issue
The U.S. military will eventually draw down its operations in Iraq, at which time the security of the Iraqi people will fall on the shoulders of the newly-formed Iraqi security forces. Insurgents and terrorist groups are bound to exploit the opportunity to attack and disrupt the fragile military and police forces. Since the Iraqi militaries and national police will be the primary forces relied upon to conduct security operations to protect the cities and the people, they will need to develop an intelligence network using local and national assets to combat these threats. In the Vietnam War, Phoenix Program was set up by the CIA using South Vietnamese Army and local police intelligence apparatus to fight the insurgency mounted from the inside South Vietnam and the assault from the North. The Intelligence Community could potentially use the lessons learned from Phoenix to aid the current OIF.
B. The Research Questions
How may lessons learned from the Phoenix Program, established during the Vietnam War, apply to the current situation in Iraq?

Excerpt From Essay:
Essay Instructions: TITLE: Compare and contrast the following two passages(shown below)from Homer's 'The Iliad' and Hesiod 'Theogony'.
a.)And now the prince, the captain of men Aeneas
would have died on the spot if Zeus' daughter
had not marked him quickly, his mother Aphrodite
who bore him to King Anchises tending cattle once.
She began to bear her dear son from the fighting ...
But once he caught her, stalking her through the onslaught, gallant Tydeus' offspring rushed her, lunging out, thrusting his sharp spear at her soft, limp wrists
So he mocked
and the goddess fled from the front, beside herself with
The deathless Aphrodite sank in Dione's lap
and her mother, folding her daughter in her arms,
stroked her gently, whispered her name, and asked.
"Who has abused you now, dear child, tell me,
who of the sons of heaven so unfeeling, so cruel?
Why, it's as if they caught you in public,
doing something wrong."
And Aphrodite who loves eternal laughter (philommeides)* sobbed in answer, "The son of Tydeus stabbed me." [... ]
[Homer, Iliad Book V-31 1 ff. .(trans. R.Fagles)]
b.)The genitalia themselves, freshly cut with flint, were thrown Clear of the mainland into the restless, white-capped sea, Where they floated a long time. A white foam from the god-flesh Collected around them, and in that foam a maiden developed And grew. Her first approach to land was near holy Kythera, And from there she floated on to the island of Kypros.
There she came ashore, an awesome, beautiful divinity. Tender grass sprouted up under her slender feet. Aphrodite
Is her name in speech human and divine, since it was in f oam She was nourished. But she is also called Kythereia since She reached Kythera, and Kyprogenes because she was born On the surf-line of Kypros, and Philommedes* because she loves The organs of sex, from which she made her epiphany.
Eros became her companion, and ravishing Desire waited on her At her birth and when she made her debut among the Immortals. From that moment on, among both gods and humans,
She has fulfilled the honoured function that includes Virginal sweet-talk, lovers' smiles and deceits
And all of the gentle pleasures of sex.
[Hesiod, Theogony 188ff. (trans. S. Lombardo)]
*philommedes = genital-loving; philommeides = laughter-loving
REQUIREMENTS: The paper must be concise and to the point and fully compare and contrast these two extracts above from the 'Iliad' and 'Theogany'. The paper must contain no irrelevant material that deviates from the precise requirements of the question.
