At least for the time being it appears that the Iraqi resistance is just about finished, judging by US casualties. Just look at the very recent trend:
In April of this year US fatalities were 52; in May 19 and in June 29. So far in 11 days in July the total is 5 (probably of vehicle accidents).
To gain perspective, in the period of April through June of last year US fatalities averaged over 110 per month.
I hate to admit it but the US strategy of using the Iraqis to slaughter each other has been a great success. Let us see if the US will try to replicate this strategy in Iran. I doubt that it will succeed there as it succeeded in Iraq.
What a great disappointment those Iraqis turned out to be.
