  • Andrew F. Krepinevich, Jr. "How to Win in Iraq". Foreign Affairs. September/October, 2005 - "The administration's critics, meanwhile, have offered as their alternative 'strategy' an accelerated timetable for withdrawal. They see Iraq as another Vietnam and advocate a similar solution: pulling out U.S. troops and hoping for the best. The costs of such premature disengagement would likely be calamitous. The insurgency could morph into a bloody civil war, with the significant involvement of both Syria and Iran. Radical Islamists would see the U.S. departure as a victory, and the ensuing chaos would drive up oil prices."
