It has been clear for some time now that no one knows what to do about the situation in Iraq. The U.S. does not have an ally which shares its basic values. It moreover does not have an ally which is fundamentally sympathetic to it. The Sunnites of Saddam will never love the U.S. The Shiites have an ideology so remote from anything the U.S. stands for that for them the U.S. is a 'devil' they are making temporary use of. How to manage this situation is not clear to anyone. A U.S. withdrawal also seems to be a way of promoting even greater disaster, Iranian hegemony over the area. No one knows what to do.
