Here's an important essay by William J. Astore, an associate professor of history at the Pennsylvania College of Technology. He also served for twenty years in the U.S. Air Force: Our Iraqi Revolution.
When is the American public going to realize that our continued presence in Iraq is not really about winning a war but rather taming a revolution that we ourselves unleashed? When you invade a country, seize its capital, depose its leader, disband its army, and throw its bureaucratic elite out of work, you have in essence imposed a revolution on that country.
Take a few minutes and read Mr. Astore's essay. Food for thought.
