The United States is no closer to achieving its goals in Iraq than it was a year ago but a quick military withdrawal could lead to massive chaos and even genocide, according to a report released Sunday by a U.S. think tank.
The U.S. Institute of Peace report was written by experts who advised the Iraq Study Group, a panel mandated by Congress to offer recommendations on U.S. policy in Iraq in 2006.
TVNL Comment: Everyone is missing the point and pretending like there was a legitimate goal. We were told that the invasion of Iraq was necessary because they were a threat to us. Remember the term "WMD?" Well, when it was confirmed that IRAQ did not have WMD and as we knew, had no intentions to harm us the "goal" became moot. THERE IS NO LEGITIMATE GOAL! This is a shell game and everyone is falling for it!!!
