The United States must not abandon Iraq?

“Today, Iraq has no functioning government, and violence is on the rise: last month, 535 people were killed, the highest total in two years.

Little wonder, then, that Lieutenant General Babakar Zebari, the head of Iraq’s armed forces, has warned that an American pull-out would be premature, and that his troops will not be in a position to take control of internal security for a decade.”

Ironically, those militant Iraqis who claim to want the US out of Iraq so badly may, by their continued violence, convince the US that we need to stay engaged longer.
