Donald Rumsfeld has said the insurgency can go on in Iraq for another dozen years. Support for the war is dwindling at home. However, since we're in the middle of it now, I don't see any way that we can withdraw without creating more problems for ourselves. Al Qaeda is festering there, so if we just leave, they'll take over ...

Rumsfeld said:



"Insurgencies tend to go on five, six, eight, 10, 12 years. Foreign forces are not going to repress that insurgency," Mr Rumsfeld said.

Congress is rumbling about withdrawing our troops, but is that even feasible at this point? Won't we just be in a worse fix if we do?
