Future Iraq

Awful as they were, Sunday's murderous Baghdad bombings were harbingers of Iraq's future as a fragile young democracy, not evidence of unfinished business for the United States. The Bush-Obama troop withdrawal must continue. Writes the "Economist:"
Iraqis know that political violence will be with them for a long time, even if full civil war can be avoided. The fortunes of insurgent groups wax and wane, their support base shrinking and expanding depending on how vulnerable sectarian groups feel. But an end to the bombings is not in sight.
