I don't know, those Iraqi civvies seem to have been more successful than the Iraqi Army at both killing and injuring Troops and destroying armored vehicles.

That's because you can't fight insurgents in a conventional way. It's much more like police work. And when you actually do fight them, you just kill lots of civvies and create more insurgents. Now, that won't matter if you're leaving.

So they are suddenly no longer going to be fighting insurgents?

No, they will be killing everyone in their way. Far easier than finding out who the bad guys are.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
