ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument against American withdrawal from Iraq. The author argues that the Iraq war was a necessary measure in terms of combating international terrorism and that withdrawal due to insurgent attacks will lead to future attacks on Western targets. The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the regime of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, and the activity of militant Islamic organization Al-Qaeda in Iraq are discussed.
