Does it really matter? This year or two years from now. When we leave Iraq will tear itself apart without help from Iranians.

I fear that you are right. I suppose that there was a tipping point before which things might have worked out in our favor. Perhaps if more sensible policies were put in place right after Baghdad fell...

Anyway, it's way too late now. As you suggested, leaving troops will just delay the inevitable. The Iraq adventure will probably end just as Vietnam did. And I suspect that Afghanistan will end the same way also. The American people no longer have the will for it to be otherwise. Vietnam again.P> That's obviously a huge waste and a great tragedy. But it's more than that. Radical islam will be emboldened to push even harder.

I wonder how soon the shell fire will start into the former Green Zone. That huge American Embassy will make an irresistible target.

But, but, but...I thought Hillary The Cankles warned Iran not to take advantage of the withdrawal. Isn't Iran now shaking in it's turban? :-)
