Immediate American troop pullout?

What will happen in Iraq if American troops are pulled out immediately? Austin Bay, who has spent a bit of time in combat zones, envisions seven potential scenarios. (via Opinionator)

1. Three countries -- Kurdistan, a Shia state, Sunni state.

2. Regional Shia-Sunni war.

3. Turkey expands.

4. Shia dictatorship.

5. Chaos.

6. Gang-up -- Shias and Kurds gang-up against the Sunnis.

7. Surprise --The Iraqi center holds.
