ABSTRACT
The author warns that pulling troops out of Iraq early could result in a radical Islamic regime funded with oil revenues, creating a platform for terrorist attacks. Public confidence is at a low point. One reason that sound plans for dealing with post-invasion Iraq were recklessly disregarded. As U.S. President George W. Bush has said, the challenge in Iraq is about whether America wins the war on terrorism or quits the field before victory is achieved. Leaving Iraq prematurely could destabilize the Middle East and threaten America. Terrorist Abu Musab Zarqawi's aspirations in Iraq are clear, as he contemplates the prospect of a jihadist Iraq.
