The only thing he could use was his experience and a heart to help the people of Iraq get back to normality. MG Petraeus had to make sure that he was going to get support from his generals. He started to contact all those people that could help him make a difference in starting a new Iraq. He made local contact with emerging political leaders, university professors, judicial figures, religious leaders and local business that understood how Iraq should function (Lundberg & Zimmerman).

The government would pay $16,000 per flat mile, $32,000 for hilly mile, and $48,000 for mountain mile (Topic Page: Transcontinental Railroad, 2014).
