ABSTRACT
The authors condemns the Iraq War and the plan of U.S. President George W. Bush to maintain U.S. military presence in Iraq. They are skeptical over a report by General David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker which claimed that enough military progress has been made to justify the continuation of counterinsurgency operations in Iraq. They insist that continuing military operations will worsen international security problems and political instability in the Middle East.
