[US Ambassador to Iraq] Khalilzad depicted the struggle to build a united, democratic Iraq as "the defining challenge of our era" and said it would shape the future of the Middle East and global security. "Those forces that constitute the extremist camp including not only al Qaeda, but Iran and Syria, are at work to keep us and the Iraqis from succeeding," ... "They fear Iraq's success. They want to undermine our resolve by imposing costs on us in terms of prolonging the conflict, imposing casualties and creating the perception that Iraq cannot be stabilized," he said.He is right - 100% right. SO..... WHEN WILL WE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!? Faster, please!
Al Qaeda and Iraq's "foreign rivals" were trying to tear the Iraqi people apart along sectarian lines, Khalilzad said, naming Iran and Syria as countries that "cynically support rival groups involved in the violence."
