Iraq: What is the end state

American military sources are confident in their military control of Iraq but unsure about the political future as reported in the NYTimes referenced on defencetech:

"We can beat these guys, and we're proving our resolve," one officer tells the paper. "But unless the political side keeps up, we'll have to do it again after July 1 and maybe in September and again next year and again and again."

Which is why the arguments for the war before the war had to be very convincing. Which they weren't. Nobody was sad to see Saddam fall, but the war in Iraq was wrong because of how it was justified with known 'untruths', because of how it was exploited after the war and because nobody thought about the present situation.
