ABSTRACT
The author comments on reasons why the United States military cannot pull its troops out of Iraq. He emphasizes the fact that the Iraqi government cannot stop sectarian killing with the help of the U.S. military, and questions its ability to succeed if American troops leave the country. He says that pulling out troops could cause a civil war, violence throughout the region, including in Iran.
