I voted, yes, before. I was wrong.

Yes, I think they will be able to keep their country. Actually nobody has any other alternative. US forces cannot be there forever. Again with the number of suicidal bomb blasts it seems to be that Iraqi people do not like the presence of American or any other foreign troops. So, this is the time for the Iraqi people to take the authority to keep their country safe.

yes, if they appoint Bush as their Chief of Security.

I think you are right Majilish, absolutely the US cannot be allowed to stay forever. Something is wrong with the training, perhaps. The difference between the military culture in The States and the Iraqi military are quite different. In the U.s. there's a lot of 'rah rah' type of cheerleading and baseball hats, a cultural quirk. Wouldn't it be best to take the Americans out and while they leave, bring in support from countries more suited and acceptable to the task? Many countries do not want to send support because of the American occupation, just as citizens in Iraq would like America to leave. There must be a better, safer way. The firing of the Iraqi army may warrent at war criminal trial considering the amount of deaths and chaos caused.;
