Will Iraq fall back to chaos when America leaves?

Posted on Updated on

In this article , Dick Cheney states concerns about possible insurgents waiting for the imminent US withdrawal from Iraqi cities. While the article’s title: “Cheney fears Iraq withdrawal will ‘waste’ U.S. sacrifices” insinuates that Cheney is against the withdrawal, I think he is only expressing concerns that most people have.

It’s unlikely at this point that another insurgency will take hold in Iraq. Al-Qaeda lost the minds of the people, which is the only real thing terrorism seeks to gain. In fact, at this point, with the Iraqi army trained up by the Americans. it may be that violence goes down when we leave the cities, and at the very least, it won’t be Americans that are the targets of suicide bombings. Narrowing the target selection of terrorists to Iraqi forces and civilians will even further erode the insurgency’s chances of gaining a foothold.

With a properly trained Iraqi security force and the American strawman gone, we can expect Iraq to move forward as a viable democratic state in the Middle East.

    Iraq will most likely grow more and not less stable. But, there is always a chance that things will go badly. The government is fairly fragile, there are still bombings and so on.

    We also have some 45000 people die on the highways every year. We become deadened to the deaths. I’m sure they will too.

    They need some good television viewing and video games. That will sedate them.
