WE COULD START BY LOOKING AT WHAT HE DID:

Gandhi's Way Isn't the American Way: Collective suicide is no foreign policy (Fred Thompson, 3/15/07, National Review)

I feel bad for Nancy Pelosi, AND her neighbors. Anti-war activists from the group Code Pink have been giving her the same treatment the president gets at his Crawford, Texas, ranch. Camping on her San Francisco lawn, they're demanding she cut off funds to the troops in Iraq.

Besides coolers and mattresses, protesters have brought along a giant paper mache statue of Mahatma Gandhi, who is pretty much the symbol of the anti-war movement. Code Pink was founded on his birthday, and when Saddam Hussein was being given a last chance to open Iraq to U.N. weapons inspectors, posters appeared around America asking "What would Gandhi do?"


Divide the formerly-British Iraq as he did the formerly-British India into several ethnic/confessional states?

No, he would try to tell Ayman al-Zawahiri about his bowel movements (all in the name of peace and solidarity).
