Do you feel the current infighting in Iraq worsen due to America's lack of presence in the country right now? I feel Iraq was already a very violent and unsafe place and the US lead invasion destabilized the country further and claimed thousands of lives both in US and Iraq. The urge for retaliation has definitely cause recent upheaval in Iraq. It seems a truly endless occurrence. Although the infighting has been going on for centuries - if you want to get technical - I think the aftermath of the war just made the Shiites and Sunnis more embolden to attack now.
