You have a U.S. installed democracy, that Iraq is unable to properly protect from anarchy and takeover without the U.S. military. I know they say we've been training the iraq'ies for 3 years and at some point the U.S. will not be needed. I don't know about that one, sounds good, I don't believe it. Then you have IRAN and SYRIA sharing the border with IRAQ. Any thoughts ??
