Kissinger Tells Us Why We are in Iraq.

by soccerdad

In an OpEd appearing in the Khaleej Times Kissinger states:

But under present conditions, withdrawal is not an option. American forces are indispensable. They are in Iraq not as a favour to its government or as a reward for its conduct. They are there as an expression of the American national interest to prevent the Iranian combination of imperialism and fundamentalist ideology from dominating a region on which the energy supplies of the industrial democracies depend.

And that in a nutshell is why the US is not leaving anytime soon.
