    The problem is that I don't believe that the US is capable of fixing it. The occupation of Iraq took a bad situation and made it worse. It isn't that if the US re-enters the fray that the killing, displacement and destruction will stop. In fact, based on past events, just the opposite may occur.

    Unless we wish to permanently occupy Iraq and conduct a continuous counter-insurgency, we will eventually leave. When that happens, the same actors will be there.

    Unfortunately, though the US created the present situation, it will be up to the Iraqis themselves to eventually undo the damage.
