Where we go from here--short version

Reader comment on item: Civil War in Iraq?

Submitted by William Robert Jack (United States), Feb 28, 2006 at 20:29

Sectarian violence between Shiites and Sunnis threatens the core of US policy in Iraq. While these divisions were feared, the real threat was not expected until we left Iraq. The Shiites, Sunnis, and Kurds ultimately will decide the governing structure they want. Nothing the US has or can do will change that. What should we do now? We need to be patient .

We can't abandon Iraq or allow Iraq to be an open terrorist haven for bin Laden and al Qaeda. Whatever the outcome, we should move cautiously.
