U.S. forces are due to withdraw from Iraq by the end of the year, and there's a wide range of opinions within the country about whether or not that's a good idea, in fact whether or not the war itself accomplished anything. The BBC's Gabriel Gatehouse has been traveling the country, gathering those opinions and reports.

This segment aired on November 15, 2011.
