‘reasonable prospect of holding it together’

From BBC NEWS | Politics:

Ex-Blair envoy gives Iraq warning

The UK and US may have to abandon Iraq if central government breaks down and the country is engulfed by chaos, Tony Blair’s former special envoy has said.

Sir Jeremy Greenstock said a pullout from Iraq might be needed if the US and UK had no ‘reasonable prospect of holding it together’.”


Rough translation: “Um, if we decide we can’t fix the mess we’ve made, then fuck them, some other cunt can deal with it.”
