One view is that the Iraqi government is not meeting enough political consensus to survive. That lack of progress is enough to be the final straw for U.S. staying in Iraq. The pressure of our withdrawing will enable the Iraqi government to get past it’s bickering and solve it’s most pressing political problems.
Yea, like the Iraqi government is not being pressured enough already? None of the leaders in the U.S. is risking their life in any way, shape or form like the leaders in Iraq. If we leave, they know what their fate is. They are hoping to protect their families, an unlikely prospect in many cases.
