Terrorist Stronghold?

Reader comment on item: Civil War in Iraq?
in response to reader comment: Overview of Iraqi Violence and US Response

Sherwood Forest is a good analogy to the way the terrorists are striking now. By "terrorist stronghold" was meant the equivalent situation to Afghanistan, where there was a clear terrorist base of operation that we could strike with air and sea launched missiles. Of course there are terroists in Iraq now but they have not settled into a clear terrorist stronghold, which is more likley if, and when, we leave Iraq.
