    With the withdrawal of most of the US troops and the draw down to no scheduled combat patrols in Iraq by US forces, where exactly is that civil war we were told would happen?

    Maineman ASSURED us that when the US left the Country would drop right into a civil war. Others have also assured us that Iraq can not stand on its own. How long do we need to wait for these events?

    one question:

    have we left the country yet?

    let's revisit this discussion six months after the last American soldier has left. OK?

    Chances are neither of you will still be living when the last American soldiers leaves Iraq.

    You claimed with out large numbers of foreign troops doing the fighting the Country would drop into civil war. American troops are not doing much fighting at all. In fact our dear leader is ANNOUNCING that combat troops have LEFT the Country.

    Where is your civil war?

    you really think civil war would start the next day? you realize today (sept 1st) was supposed to be the last day, but we left early for the surprise element right?

    there have been numerous bombings daily in the last week and it wasnt even a week ago when over 8 locations were attacked at the same exact time with suicide bombers, gunmen, etc

    but until then.... here's a little light reading that would tend to indicate that the peaceful Jeffersonian multicultural democracy that was supposed to blossom on the banks of the Euphrates isn't all that peaceful

    Dozens dead in Iraq attacks - Middle East - Al Jazeera English

    A series of deadly attacks have rocked Iraq, leaving more than 50 people dead and scores more wounded. The attacks on Wednesday came a day after the number of US troops in the country fell below 50,000.

    Iraq on highest alert for terror attacks - World news - Mideast/N. Africa - Conflict in Iraq - msnbc.com

    Iraq's prime minister put his nation on its highest level of alert for terror attacks, warning of plots to sow fear and chaos as the U.S. combat mission in the country formally ends on Tuesday. In a statement to state-run television, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Iraqi intelligence indicated an al-Qaida front group and members of Saddam Hussein's outlawed Baath party are collaborating to launch attacks "to create fear and chaos and kill more innocents."

    also if you want to see real civil war there, then encourage irsael to attack iran. iraq would fall in the next 48 hrs as every group iran controls in iraq (which is quite a few) would start holy war

    I claimed that when American forces left, that the country would dissolve into sectarian violence, that the shiites would take control and establish close ties with Iran.

    Like I said, let's revisit this discussion six months after all our troops are gone.

    Israel missed their supposed chance to attack, that was BEFORE the reactor went ONLINE. You guys keep claiming we, the US , or Israel will attack Iran, How many years will you keep making that claim? This has been around for 5 now and has not even remotely happened.
