Hey! How's Bush's "surge" in Iraq working?

Apparently, it's not working very well.

In fact, Reuters is reporting that a British think tank considers Iraq's government to be on the verge of collapse.

Rascal,

Apparently you didn't read all the way to the end. This was the concluding paragraph:

Should a U.S. withdrawal herald the beginning of a full-scale Sunni-Shi'ite civil war in Iraq, Saudi Arabia "might not stand by," the paper said, "with the possibility of Iran and Saudi Arabia fighting each other through proxies in Iraq".

This would seem to argue against withdrawal...unless you want an even larger war.
