With US Troops Poised To Withdraw, Baghdad Enters New Phase

BAGHDAD, IRAQ - JULY 20: An Iraqi police officer watches cars at a checkpoint on July 20, 2011 in Baghdad, Iraq. Iraqi police and army checkpoints are a constant presence in the capital city which has experienced a gradual decline in violence. As the deadline for the departure of the remaining American forces in Iraq approaches, Iraqi politicians have been increasingly pressured to give a final decision about extending the mandate for a small U.S. military presence beyond the end of the 2011 deadline. Violence against foreign troops has recently picked-up with June being the worst month in combat-related deaths for the military in Iraq in more than two years. Currently about 46,000 U.S. soldiers remain in Iraq. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
