Iraq has two possible futures, depending upon the American Presidential Election.
1.) Mc Cain gets elected. The troop levels stay the same, if not occasionally growing or reducing, upon orders of the commanding General Petraeus.
Iraq eventually stabilizes. Iraq's new military and police forces gradually mature and become more professional, thus become able to control their own security. This would take a long, painful, gradual process, fraught with the occasional setback, blown out of proportion by the liberal media. This summer's reverse of the Sunnis, who now side with the American Army, ensures that there will be gradual success. There can be no timetables, though, since then all the terrorists have to do is wait.
2.) Obama wins the election, and the American military withdraws. All gains from the surge are rapidly lost, as terrorists return to unguarded locations and oppress the local people into supporting them. The new army and police force begin to disintegrate, while some members fight on, until murdered, along with their families. Total Chaos reigns, and Iraq sinks into exactly what Al Quaida wanted, a sectarian civil war between the Sunnis and the Shiites.
Either this civil war lasts forever, or eventually the most committed side wins, and Turkey invades the Kurdish regions. Iran would then enter, under the premise of supporting their new puppet shiite nation to the south. Genocide erupts on a large scale, similar to Bosnia.
The Coalition for Iraq naturally dissolves, and Bin Laden and Sheikh Omar turn their newly victorious monsters fully towards Afghanistan. The Afghanistan and NATO troops fight valiantly for the rights and freedoms of the country of Afghanistan, but without proper, or reluctant American military support, the outcome is questionable.
Further terrorist attempts would also be made to overthrow the Pakistani Government, and one day would probably succeed, giving Al Quaida the Atomic Bomb.
More trouble would alo be brewing for Saudi Arabia, with the specter of terrorist takeover becoming more possible.
Finally, we would run out of oil. Israel would probably get nuked, too.

Iraqis are moving on. Their stock exhange opened up in 2004, they are using more electricity than they ever have, 3,800 new Iraqi cops are hitting the streets and the Iraqi military is moving itself around on its own. Iraq government also has over $250 billion in its account.
Protesters are down. Sadr had to cancel his million man march because he has lost a lot of support among the Iraqis. The last protest in Iraq against the U.S. and the Iraqi government was about 1,500.
Al Qaeda doesn't need very many people to launch a bombing and they really don't have much of a force.
The Iraqi military is moving into towns that boarder Iran in order to starve off any Iranian influence.

hmmmm.. The Future of Iraq?
Well, terrorism is never going to go away completely. We still get terrorism in the states. However, what we are accomplishing here is that we are helping keep it to a minimum and helping the Iraqi people learn that they do not need to tolerate this sort of behavior from small activist groups. Before now, this country was ruled by terror. Now, they are learning to govern themselves and training up to defend themselves from these type of activists. The main reason we are still here is because it's not the Iraqi people who are making it difficult. It is the outside countries who are feeding these group with weapons and supporting the chaos that they bring. When that is eliminated or at least brought to a minimum, we will be able to bring most of our troops home. But, it will probably be awhile so, support your troops and thank God that we don't have to deal with this sort of behavior regularly in the states.

There WERE no terrorists in Iraq before we invaded. There was not one single car bombing or suicide bombing there before our invasion. As it is now, we are creating terrorists faster than we can kill them. Whether they are coming into the country from elsewhere to fight our troops, or they are home-grown doesn't really matter.
Anyway, it was never really about terrorism. The only chance we had was to stabilize Iraq and get it on track before the country fell apart. If we ever had a chance at that it is gone now, it disappeared when every single building in Iraq was looted. There is no civil structure there now and not much chance of our creating one.
If you find something in the back of the refrigerator that's green and fuzzy you can throw it away now or you can put it back in the fridge and throw it away a week from now. It's not going to get better. We can stay in Iraq as long as we like, but our chances are not improving.
I really think President Bush's only real strategy now is to keep it going until the Democrats take it out of his hands, and then Republicans will blame the Democrats for 'surrendering' when we were clearly winning. There simply is no other plan left to the administration. You know if there was anything different they could think of to try they'd try it. So far all they've had was a 'surge' that really meant temporarily raising our troop strength to what it had been a couple of years before. Then they claimed this worked, but obviously it hasn't.
Eventually we will leave Iraq and let them fight it out among themselves. And the majority Shia will win. Don't we believe in majority rule?

do you really care? did you care before the U.S went over there? you know you dont give a flyin **** what happens to iraq after our troops leave......... i think while the U.S is there eliminating the threat an what not, things are going to be civil in iraq for like a year or less because terrorist kids will grow up starting it all over agian. its a continues cycle its like gangs in the states you can lock every body up but the next generation is still gonna come along sooner or later and start it all over.

"Terrorists" are just people, you can kill all you want and will never extinguish the whole philosophy these people live by; thats why its a waste of time if you think we went to Iraq to get rid of "Terrorist." The whole reason The US is there is to set up permanent bases. Just like Japan and Germany; with either presidential candidate you will get this resolution so choose one.
