40. Yes, we've lost Iraq
There is no point in trying to reclaim it with the troops we have, the insurgency is too deeply integrated now. Our only real option at this point is to withdraw and let them fight their civil war while helping those we can, while at the same time trying to ensure that Iran doesn't get its hands on the country, and preventing the chaos from spreading to neighboring nations. In about 10 to 15 years the insurgency should die out, because everyone fighting it will hopefully be dead or have given up.
