5. It's a hard question to answer
It's pretty clear that what we're doing right now isn't working. But at the same time, Iraq has the second largest reserves of oil in the world, letting the entire country descend into civil war wouldn't be good for our strategic interests. I think we do need to do something about the situation, but I'm not sure pulling our troops out is the right thing to do at the moment. We did make the mess, we should at least try to clean up after ourselves.
