Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger on Friday warned against an early withdrawal of US-led coalition forces from Iraq, saying such a move would bolster insurgents and terrorists. "To argue that a collapse of the United States in Iraq would not have consequences ... is simply living in a dream world," Kissinger said, speaking to reporters ahead of a lecture on NATO's future. He said he hoped that when a new government is elected in Iraq next month "a combination of legitimacy and training of troops of the Iraqi army will improve (the) security situation."
