December will mark the second anniversary of the US withdrawal of troops from Iraq. The withdrawal was supposed to signify that Iraq was a stable country, with a government that represented its people and a military capable of handling security threats. But the country is plagued by violence with suicide- and car-bombings occurring on a near-daily basis. More than 7,000 people have been killed by militant attacks in Iraq this year alone, according to a recent report. RT's Meghan Lopez asks Said Arikat, correspondent and political analyst for Al Quds, about the situation in Iraq.
