If the government following the elections of March 7, 2010, reveals to be unable to appease the tensions, by maintaining a minimum level of security, the risk of a greater eruption of violence may increase, with the prospect of the US troops leaving the country. The state that the Bush administration took out from Saddam’s hands risks falling for an indefinite time in endless conflicts. Not only is there the danger of becoming a failed state, but the neighborhood will also be affected. In this paper we try to assess the results of seven years of occupation, and the problems that may arise following the withdrawal of U.S. troops.
