Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The US troops can be withdrawn into heavily defended bases quickly enough. They have been building them for years now. Supply lines can be sustained through the air until troops complete an organised retreat to the south east, where the main oil fields are. Bar a rapid incursion of the Iranian military, the Iraqis don't have the means to cut off the army in the middle of Iraq. They would have the means if the Americans were out on the street, but I'd expect that most forces will be withdrawn to the bases in the case of an attack.
