Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Air cover is useless unless you try to eliminate all traffic on the roads and in a wide corridor around them, permanently, for the duration of the retreat.

That would be the idea, I guess.
There's also the small point that if there's a retreat Iraq will have been handed over, at least in part, to Iran - which might not be popular politically.

Of course. But if the US decides to strike Iran, their situation in Iraq will soon become untenable. The discussion was on whether and how they can make it out.
