FOX News reported:

Iraq’s National Security Advisor Mouwafak al-Rubaie told FOX News that he agrees that a precipitous withdrawal of troops from Iraq would be a catastrophe for Iraq tipping it into violent chaos. “John McCain tough steadfastness and perseverance and stamina has helped in pulling back a lot of old friends back, to supporting Iraq and I think he’s a very interesting guy.

More than any other presidential hopeful, McCain has staked his reputation on America coming out of Iraq with its credibility intact. Today in remote Anbar Province the continuing improvement in security looks like he’s backed a winner.

Iraq’s Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said the same thing today:

Iraq’s foreign minister said Tuesday that he believes his country has averted a civil war after five years of “tears and blood,” and warned that an abrupt U.S. troop withdrawal would be disastrous.

Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari told The Associated Press that mistakes had been made by all sides but Iraq has reached a turning point.

Meanwhile… Hillary Clinton said on Monday we cannot win the Iraq War.

UPDATE: It sounds like Pelosi Wants ‘Rwanda-Like Genocide’ in Iraq, too.
