However, even though British troops have left Basra itself, conflict between militias and against the populace is still a problem. There are reports of women being attacked for not wearing a headscarf, for instance.

Overall I suppose it has helped in many ways, but it's important to remember that it's still a mess - essentially it's the least worst scenario (but it's still bad).
