Baghdad residents have voiced mixed reactions to the US withdrawal. For some, the end of the US presence could not come soon enough. Others worry the incomplete government might not be capable of securing the country after the US troops are gone.
Baghdad resident Amir Sa'doon said, "Let the US troops go. Let them go today rather than tomorrow. We don't want them. They made us tired. Why did they stay here? They occupied us. Enough occupation. Let them go. What did they want from us?"
Baghdad resident Ali Al-Lami said, "The American withdrawal at this time means American officials will start re-considering their interests one hundred percent. The only thing the US troops did in Iraq was remove a government and bring in a weak and incomplete government that we have reaped nothing good from."
