ABSTRACT
The article discusses the potential dangers of a rapid withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. The Democrat-led U.S. Congress wants to pass legislation with a timetable for withdrawal, and U.S. President George W. Bush has vowed to veto any such bill. A rapid withdraw could cause the complete collapse of Iraq with massive violence between Sunni and Shiite Muslims, and leave Iraq open for total terrorist infiltration. U.S. military officials say that troop commitments in Iraq cannot be maintained.
