Why they should stay
David petraeus 将军，美军在伊拉克的高级司令官； Ryan Crocker 大使，这周到国会山进行报告。他们用好几个翻转的图表来向国会解释，从伊拉克撤军会导致灾难，而最近的增兵对伊拉克的屠杀已经有了很大的抑制作用。
General David petraeus, the American's senior commandor in Iraq and Ryan Crocker, its ambassador went to capitol HILL to give a report this week. They took along flipchart of tables purporting to show that the surge of recent months began to work on the Iraq's killing and if American gave up now the consequence would be disastrous.
But what is the truth? As Economist think, the effects general said is exaggerated. But the sure thing is, If American removes its forces while Iraq remains its present condition, disastrous consequences is likely to happen.
Now, pressure on the American in Iraq is larger and larger.
first of all, Democrats criticize that the American government have not actually shaped the Iraq's politics.
second, more and more Iraqis dont count on American any more. Furthermore, Shia-led government that the American props up in Baghdad thinks of Iran as its best foreign friend. it's irony of ironies.
This week,in senate, Democrates said, American should not support an indefinit war whose goal is just for preventing situation from getting worse. With the prospect of an Iraqi political settlement appearing to recede, Asking American to squander lives and money is getting harder and harder. Maybe there will be a non-sectarian army in Iraq to do the much of work the Americans do now. Or, the prospect of a new president after 2008 will concentrate the minds of squabbling politician in Baghdad. On the other hand, those hopes which inspired by Iraq's first free election, failed to bear fruit.
If American could make choice again, it would not invade Iraq. But there is another reason worse than preventing the bloodbath for the superpower to put Americans at risk. American invaded Iraq just in its own interest--removing Iraq's mass-killing weapon that turned out not to exist. America owes so much to Iraq's people, the slim majority of which want it to stay.z` at some point, Iraq may have sunk so low that it is simply beyond saving, but it is not possible to be sure of that now.
