Is it or is it Not Worth the Time to Defeat the Insurgency?

The Cafferty File, part of The Situation Room on CNN, poses a question every hour The Situation Room is on. This is today's 5:00 question, and Thoughts on the World's response.
Is it worth spending 10 years to defeat the insurgency in Iraq?

Yes. The U.S. liberated Iraq, and we need to finish the job. Imagine a safe haven in Iraq: not for terrorists, but for democracy and lovers of democracy. It will take patience, one thing the American people does not have a great deal of. But we can’t do all the defeating. We have to get the message across to the Iraqi government that THEY have to take the lead in enforcing their laws in their country.
