al Qaeda in Iraq
If al Qaeda was not in Iraq before we invaded, they are today. Iraq is where the enemy is known to be operating and Iraq is desert, which is ideal for mechanized forces like the U.S. to engage in battle. I find it difficult to believe that al Qaeda will not continue to operate within Iraq. I also find it difficult to believe that Iraqi forces can defeat the 'insurgency' without U.S. direct involvement. Our President believes otherwise. It may take a few years, but we are probably going to find out who is correct.
