5 years - life

The US-led coalition may need to spend another five years in Iraq before the country's own security forces are able to take over and guarantee security, a London thinktank said today.

And even then, success in Iraq is not a foregone conclusion, the International Institute for Strategic Studies said in its annual report.

Anybody who is half-informed about the situation in Iraq now will tell you this is an impossibility. For me, this is not within the realm of a possibility. I couldn't imagine if American troops are allowed to stay by the Iraq people for five entire years. I'm not saying they couldn't do it by force. But if elections seem flawed when they take place. The situation will get more difficult by the day.
