The "new Iraq"

Now that the US military has withdrawn from the cities of Iraq in order to safeguard its troops (although not to much effect in terms of stopping the killing of US troops), the insurgents are free to attack in Baghdad and other population centers, without interdiction by our troops and without leaving any trace for our intelligence to stop further attacks.

So--the US military is going to be proven unable to give security to the cities and it's not a big step to the argument that they shouldn't be allowed to remain. Let's hope that the Iraqis, shortly after power is turned over to them, take this step and kick us out. At least that way the bleeding will stop.
