2AC Iraq Aff Dartmouth  2K9 Rachel, Jessie M, Jessie PB, Ryan, Greg 3 No countries invade Fettweis Withdrawal increase cooperation, all countries want stability, No countries will invade a perceived weak Iraq Fettweis 07 Christopher Fettweis, Ph.D., assistant professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College, December 2007. [Survival 49.4, On the Consequences of Failure in Iraq, p. 83—98] The biggest risk of an American withdrawal is intensified civil war in Iraq rather than regional conflagration . Iraq's neighbours will likely not prove eager to fight each other to determine who gets to be the next country to spend itself into penury propping up an unpopular puppet regime next door. As much as the Saudis and Iranians may threaten to intervene on behalf of their co religionists, they have shown no eagerness to replace the counter-insurgency role that American troops play today . If the United States , with its remarkable military and unlimited resources, could not bring about its desired solutions in Iraq, why would any other country think it could do so ?17 Common interest, not the presence of the US military, provides the ultimate foundation for stability . All ruling regimes in the Middle East share a common (and understandable) fear of instability . It is the interest of every actor - the Iraqis, their neighbours and the rest of the world - to see a stable, functioning government emerge in Iraq. If the United States were to withdraw, increased regional cooperation to address that common interest is far more likely than outright warfare 3 Last printed 7/8/10 12:40 PM                                       “You can just call me Jelly”- Jessie Puka-Beals

Guffey Prepared for the United States Air Force The research described in this report was sponsored by the United States Air Force under Contract “THE IRAQ EFFECT The Middle East After the Iraq War” http://www.rand.org/pubs/monographs/2010/RAND_MG892.pdf Indeed, what many view as an Iranian drive for hegemony may in fact be intended as a form of deterrence or a bid for increased stature and “indispensability.” The “new assertiveness” in Iranian external behavior can be characterized as an attempt to consolidate and preserve the strategic gains that were in some sense handed to the Islamic Republic by the U.S. invasions of Iraq

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
