Security and violence in Baghdad remains unimproved despite a 'surge' in troops, and some soldiers are questioning the U.S. presence in Iraq, according to a report from CNN International's Your World Today.

During the report, CNN reporter Hugh Riminton accompanied soldiers in a humvee and narrowly avoided an IED attack and insurgent ambush.

"We've talked at length, my soldiers and myself, and a term that comes up often is this is our generation's Vietnam," said U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Matthew St. Pierre. "I don't think this can be won, we're caught in the middle of a civil war."
