US troops in Iraq for 'ten years'

In Iraq today and the suicide attacks on US troops and Iraqi patrols continue. In the west of the country the US forces were engaging insurgents in an offensive named ‘New Market’. John Burns from the New York Times, gives credence to the reports that Zarqawi is injured. But his removal may not quell the insurgency and US troops may not leave for at least 5 years. “Realistically we’re talking years, possibly ten” before troops can leave he says.
